Zell am See-Kaprun

Zell am See-Kaprun Overview

The ski area of Zell am See and Kaprun covers 138 kilometres of pistes with a highest lift at 3029 metres. The Kitzsteinhorn Glacier, included in your lift pass, guarantees the best conditions for both early and late season. Zell am See and Kaprun are scenic resorts ever popular with school groups due to its wide range of skiing for all abilities and the abundance of après-ski. There are plenty of easy slopes for beginners at the Maiskogel and Schmittenhöhe, but there are also challenging slopes with the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier being particularly popular for intermediate and experienced skiers. Après-ski activities include an indoor pool with slides, ice-skating, a weekly ski show, sleigh rides, and visits to an ice-hockey match. In addition to this, the ski resorts of Zell am See and Saalbach are now under one lift pass, meaning you have the opportunity to ski two fantastic Austrian resorts during your trip!
