Winter or Summer, active holidays or recreation, as a couple or with the whole family - there is sure to be something to fit everybody’s taste!
In winter the Zell am See-Kaprun sports region can be described as follows:
Two beautiful ski resorts, three ski areas and a picturesque lake.
In addition to 150 km of slopes and some snowparks, hikers and cross-country skiers will also find many trails through the idyllic mountain landscape.
Numerous huts and restaurants ensure your wellbeing and the villages offer a cozy après-ski atmosphere.
You can choose from 3 ski areas: Kitzsteinhorn, Maiskogel and Schmittenhöhe.
The Kitzsteinhorn Glacier ski resort extends to an altitude of more than 3000 m. As early as October, the season opens and continues into the early summer. 40 kilometers of slopes, 5 freeride routes and world class snow parks guarantee thrill and challenge.
You can also carve your turns across the region's steepest piste – the Black Mamba.
Experienced cross-country skiers will enjoy it on the glacier cross-country ski track at 2.900 m above sea level.
Salzburg's highest located restaurant is situated on the Kitzsteinhorn as well!
The Schmittenhöhe near Zell am See is one of the most popular ski areas in the SalzburgerLand. It is considered to be the most beautiful view mountain. It is a modern ski area with varied slopes (77 km) - from the flat family run to black slopes.The pistes are almost always in a perfect condition, since they do not get any direct sunlight. The 'Trass' with a length of 4,150 m belongs to the legendary slopes; once a year the traditional Trass-Lauf takes place.
The Schmittenhöhe ski area is also home to the world's largest fun-slope, a 2-km-long cross-country ski trail and a snowpark area for freestyling. Several 'children's countries' provide fun among the youngest.
Cozy ski huts and sun terraces invite you to enjoy your skiing break.
The Maiskogel at Kaprun is the family ski area in this region. 20 km mostly easy slopes, cozy ski huts and a rich offer for children, such as the all-year cute, a ride on the snow groomer or the „Maisi-Phantasy-Park“ guarantee family fun!
A shuttle bus is driving for free between Kaprun, Zell am See and Viehhofen, which means that all ski resorts can be easily combined.
In the summer you are spoiled for choice – Hiking in the mountains or sunbathing at the lake? Do both! There are many sights to visit as well (f. e. Kaprun Castle) or explore Austria's oldest national park Hohe Tauern. A rich offer for the whole family, from the boat trip to the children's park, will ensure unforgettable holiday experiences.
In addition, several cultural events will enhance your stay.
