Welcome to Zell am See Ski Resort
When it comes to mountain views, few are as breathtaking and special as the sight you’re greeted with on top of the Schmittenhöhe mountain above Zell am See, Austria. It’s not just the sea of mountains stretching across the skyline but the sight of the 4km long lake Zell that makes it special. The skiing in Zell is fairly chilled – think tree-lined groomers with a few challenging red and black runs.
But it gets more exciting in neighbouring Kaprun, which gives access to the wide pistes and high altitude of the Kitzsteinhorn glacier. It’s home to some amazing off-piste just off the marked runs. Freestylers will also love the half pipes, jumps and rails in the terrain park. Zell is also now on the same lift pass as Saalbach-Hinterglemm, which makes the ski area pretty enormous.
