“This region offers so many oportunities. We have the glacier and that means natural snow pretty much all year long. And, of course, there is the amazing view of Lake Zell and the surrounding mountains. It's beautiful!”
The stunning peaks and welcoming huts attract all types of visitors and local guides love to share their secrets. “The alpine world of Zell am See-Kaprun is my office and workplace,” explains Andreas Gassner, Zell am See-Kaprun mountain guide. “We have been out and about in our local mountains for decades so we know the most beautiful spots and best summits. I recommend a tour up to the Ronachkopf, a calm beautiful mountain exclusively for snowshoe hikers and ski tourers. You hike up through snowy trees for an hour and from the Ronachkopf we enjoy an amazing view over the lake, the glacier and the mountains.” But that’s not all. “You have to taste the traditional Austrian food in the hut up there, then enjoy skiing down the prepared piste.”
1. Raise a glass
Sample icy cold glacier vodka from the ultimate chilled glass made of ice -- inside a real igloo no less. High upon the glittering Kitzsteinhorn glacier, the ICE CAMP makes a snow-sure and festive stop filled with wintery treats.
2. Coast from top to bottom
Zoom to speeds of up to 40km per hour on the Maisiflitzer, the year-round alpine coaster snakes from the heights of the Maiskogel on an adrenaline-fueled fun course. Children from 3 years up are welcome, making it fun for the entire family.
3. Shoot an action video
Become a star of the slopes making your own action video on the world's longest funslope. The spectacular Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See is home to a funslope with 1,300m of snails, tunnels, waves and steep curves. Fun for all skiers and boarders from beginners to advanced.
4. Dig into local delights
Lunch becomes a matter of love when tasty Austrian specialities meet tapas at the Areit Lounge high on the Schmittenhöhe. A visit to this new chic, stylish and very modern ski hut is a must. With open fireplace and stellar views, this is creative cooking at its best.
5. Start your day at the top
Start early and fuel up with a delicious breakfast up on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier. Fragrant coffee, tasty locally cured meats and regional cheeses, freshly baked breads at the highest restaurant in Salzburgerland get the ski day off to a great start.
