3) Skiing in the Zell am See-Kaprun ski areaOn the Kitzsteinhorn, winter sports fun awaits on the glacier slopes with guaranteed snow, which are open from autumn to early summer. The Gletscherjet and Panoramabahn take you to the heart of the ski area in two sections. There are an astonishing number of blue pleasure slopes on the sunny plateau, and above all the red slopes spread out further up. A glacier shuttle drives up to the highest point in the ski area at 3,029 m. At the “Gipfelwelt 3.000” there is next to the summit restaurant, among other things, the panorama platform “Top of Salzburg” with a fabulous view and an automatic photo point. With a snow park including a super halfpipe, a race track, the “Eagle Line” fun slope and half a dozen mountain restaurants, the Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area is ideally equipped for winter sports enthusiasts of all ages.
4) Expert evaluationWith 4.3 out of 5 stars, Zell am See-Kaprun is one of the best-rated ski areas in Austria. In the family and beginner categories as well as in terms of modern lift systems, it even achieved the maximum rating.
5) Off-piste activitiesThere is always something going on in the valley towns of Zell am See and Kaprun. The tourist program is packed with ski shows, guest ski races, live concerts, art events and enjoyable days in the huts. There are several hiking trails with great views in the Schmittenhöhe ski area for an individual mountain experience. At the Ronachkopf on the opposite shore of the lake, a great ski tour leads past the Enzianhütte to the summit at 1,350 m. Several snowshoe trails also lead over the Schmitten and the surrounding hills. A total of 55 km of groomed trails delight cross-country skiers, including a high-altitude trail at 2,900 m on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier and a night trail in Zell am See. The yodelling workshops on the mountain, which take place on selected dates on the Sonnkogel, are certainly among the most curious experiences. Even without skis or a board on your feet, a climb to the “Gipfelwelt 3000” on the Kitzsteinhorn is worthwhile. This is the highest reachable point in the Salzburger Land, from where a great view over Lake Zell and the summit chain of the Limestone Alps opens up on the panorama platform “Top of Salzburg”. Other attractions at the summit are the National Park Gallery, a 360 m long exhibition inside the mountain, and a cinema where visitors can learn more about the region and the Kitzsteinhorn. When the temperature is low enough, Lake Zell is open to ice skating and ice hockey games – a wonderful natural experience. Otherwise, ice skaters can switch to an ice rink in Zell am See and another natural ice rink in Kaprun. Gliding downhill is not only possible in the region over the ice, but also downhill. Toboggan fans, for example, get their money’s worth on the 1.5 km long, illuminated toboggan run from Köhlergraben through the Schmittental and on the 2 km long route above Kaprun at the Guggebichl snack station. For relaxation after a day of skiing or as a welcome alternative in bad weather, the Tauern Spa Kaprun is the best option. The well-known thermal spa wellness center has a 20,000 m² SPA water and sauna world with 13 saunas and twelve pools. Après-ski is also very important in the valley towns of Zell am See and Kaprun. Already from noon there is a relaxed, happy atmosphere in the Schnapshans-Alm on the Schmittenhöhe. In the afternoon and into the late evening there is a lot going on in the relevant bars and clubs such as the “Crazy Daisy”, the “Diele” or the “Karambar”.
6) Locations in the Zell am See-Kaprun ski areaThe main town of the ski region and district capital of the Pinzgau is Zell am See . Located directly on the shores of Lake Zell, the municipality is the tourist center of the region. The place is not only suitable as a starting point for activities on the mountain, but also offers opportunities for souvenir shopping and strolling through the diverse rows of shops. The neighboring town of Kaprun is a few kilometers further on at an altitude of 786 m and is the starting point for the slopes on the Maiskogel. The Kitzsteinhorn rises above the village and is considered to be the first glacier ski area in Austria. To the south of Lake Zell is also the municipality of Bruck am Großglockner, which is the picturesque starting point for excursions on the Großglockner High Alpine Road.
8) Arrival in the Zell am See-Kaprun ski areaComing by car from Munich, take the A8, A93 and then either through Walchsee and Lofer or St. Johann in Tirol and Fieberbrunn to Saalfelden.
