  • So what's it like?

    Magnificent lakeside resort with fantastic skiing opportunities

    This smart little lakeside town is packed with charm, offering a good range of shops, bars and cafés and a traffic-free centre. During the height of the winter the lake freezes over enabling you to walk from one side to the other, while activities such as curling and skating are practised upon it. Zell am See is part of the Europa Sport Region which includes the neighbouring glacier resort of Kaprun. Easily accessible by local ski bus, the area provides a great range of pistes to suit all levels.

    Ski information

    Ski Information Beginners

    Beginners will be well looked after by the local ski school, with the manageable pistes of the Areitalm, above Schuttdorf, and the left hand slopes of the Schmittenhöhe bowl. We recommend buying your lift pass once you arrive in resort if you are a beginner joining ski school.

    Ski Information Intermediates

    The widest range of intermediate runs can be found on the Schmittenhöhe, including one superb 8kms descent involving a breathtaking 1,200m vertical drop. Just 25 minutes away by free ski bus, and included on the same lift pass, is Kaprun and the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier, which at over 10,000ft offers guaranteed snow.

    Ski Information Advanced

    Advanced skiers can test themselves with a range of challenging runs on the Schmittenhöhe, which boasts 3 reddish blacks through the trees, some fine mogul runs underneath the chairlifts and some superb powder skiing when conditions are favourable.
