Zell Am See Skiing

Zell Am See is known for its stunning scenery, idyllic lakeside location and diverse skiing. Nestled at the foot at the foot of a valley on the shores of Lake Zell this historic town ticks all the boxes for "boutique ski resort". The charm of the the town coupled with the quality of the on-mountain experience means a ski holiday in Zell Am See will not disappoint.

Extended Ski Area

Zell Am See is part of the bigger Zell Am See / Kaprun ski area. Access between the two is by 20 minutes bus ride (free with your lift pass). New for 2019/2020 is the link between the Zell Am See and Ski Circus (Saalbach - Hinterglemm Leogang - Fieberbrunn) resorts. This link is only skiable one way (Saalbach to Zell Am See) A short bus ride is required when going in the opposite direction. This extended ski area is included in the new "Alpin Card" lift pass which is the standard pass for Zell Am See. This card gives you access to over 400km of pistes!

For Beginners

Beginners will feel very comfortable Zell Am See. There are plenty of long cruising blue runs on which to find your feet. There are pistes suitable for beginners around the Areitbahn II, Areitbahn III, Hahnkopf, Glockner, Breiteck, Kapellenbahn and Kettingbahn lifts. There is also a beginners area with a covered magic carpet lift at the AreitXpress mountain station. One important point to note: Most of the easiest runs are actually higher up the mountain and as such it can be difficult for a beginner to ski all the way down to the town.

For Intermediates / Advanced

Zell Am See / Kaprun is heaven for the competent skier. With everything for meandering-below-the-tree-line skiing to wide open high altitude glacier skiing there is something to keep you entertained every day. Factor in the excellent lift infrastructure, mountain restaurants and lakeside views and you are in for a treat! You can find out more about skiing on Zell Am See on the official website.

Night Skiing

Skiing at night! What? Yup! There is a night slope just above Zell Am See. It is open from 28 Dec 2019 to 08 Mar 2020 between 18:30-21:00 every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. It's a great opportunity to try something a little different (and magical) while on skies. Access to night skiing is included as part of the "Alpine Card" lift pass. Go for the skiing, stay for the views!

Lake Zell

You cannot talk about Zell Am See without talking about the lake! The picture postcard views and coupled with its amazing history only add to the charm. For winter visitors one of the most important questions is "Does it freeze over?" ANd the answer is...... Yes, sometimes! Every few years the lake does freeze over. It usually happens after a prolonged period of cold dry weather. The tourist office will let you is safe to walk on the ice. If it is safe it is an easy walk from one side to the other. Fun Fact: Ferdinand Porsche (yes that Porsche) used to race his cars on the lake in the winter back in the day, his family still have a strong connection to the town.
