First-class winter sport in Zell am See-Kaprun

Zell am See-Kaprun is one of the most famous and most legendary winter sport regions in the Alps: This is the place for anyone who appreciates brilliant downhill runs and absolute snow-reliability.

Top-modern mountain railways, three ski mountains – including the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier ski resort at the edge of the Hohe Tauern National Park – as well as an extensive fun, family and culinary programme on the pistes and beyond contribute to the Zell am See-Kaprun legend.

The Schmittenhöhe – a ski mountain with star qualities

The three ski resorts Kitzsteinhorn, Schmittenhöhe and Maiskogel boast a total of 66 pistes with 138 kilometres and make this region one of the most diverse winter sport areas in Austria. And all this with just one ticket! Each mountain has its own special features. The Schmittenhöhe, for example, with 77 kilometres of pistes, the world’s longest fun slope, the black “Trass“ with a 70% incline, with night skiing and a fantastic range of huts is the unmatched allrounder of the region. The lovingly called “Schmitten“ is the local mountain and offers everything you wish for on a perfect day of skiing – including the lower terminus in the town centre of Zell am See.

Fulminant mountain railway project: Maiskogel goes Kitzsteinhorn

The Maiskogel in Kaprun with 14 blue piste kilometres is the perfect winter playground for families. With begin of the 2018/19 season, winter sportsmen and women will benefit from a multi-purpose lower terminus including 2,000 ski depots in the town centre and the modern 10-seater MK Maiskogelbahn. The spectacular 3K Kaprun-Kitzsteinhorn-K-onnection from Kaprun via the Maiskogel directly to the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier ski resort will be put in operation from December 2019. With 12 kilometres and six end-to-end cable cars, the K-Konnection will be the longest cable car axis with the biggest difference in altitude in the Eastern Alps.

“Kitzsteinhorn“ – unmatched winter sport legend

In the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier ski resort, winter is especially long: a dream come true for skiers, snowboarders, freestylers, ski tourers and winter fans, lasting from October to early summer.
