Winter panorama of Zell am See Kaprun

Zell am See-Kaprun

Alps at their very best 

A wealth of experiences, from glaciers to mountains to lakes

Take your skiing holiday to a whole new dimension amid glaciers, mountains and lakes. Enjoy unbounded freedoms, fresh perspectives and a winter full of experiences 

Zell am See-Kaprun’s glacial environment means that its ski season begins particularly early and ends late: winter calls the shots in Zell am See for many months of the year. There are perfectly groomed slopes on the Kitzsteinhorn, Maiskogel and Schmittenhöhe mountains, outstanding snow parks and tempting places to indulge your appetite. A programme of activities (including activities for families) also promises unforgettable outdoor experiences. The Ski ALPIN CARD gives you access to 408 kilometres of pistes and enables you to move freely across a vast area, with ski-in/ski-out facilities for your ultimate convenience. However much you’re yearning for winter, Zell am See will satisfy your desire.
