Ski Touring in Zell am See-Kaprun
Want to climb up the mountain with your touring skis? The Maiskogel is perfect for beginners and enthusiasts. The slopes are closed exclusively for ski touring every wednesday evening.
We've got brand new ski touring routes high up at the glacier Kitzsteinhorn which ensure enough snow even in autumn. They are called the „Eisbrecher“ (Icebreaker) and the „Schneekönigin“ (Snow Queen) which run down beside the pistes.
The „Schneekönigin“ runs from the Langwiedboden to the Alpincenter, negotiating 474 altitude metres. The „Eisbrecher“ also starts at the Langwiedboden but runs past the Alpincenter to the top station of the Maurer lift at 2.875 metres – with 899 altitude metres. All endurance athletes treasure training at these high altitudes where the „thin“ air has less oxygen.
Apart from the Ski touring slopes on the Kitzsteinhorn we opend the Ronachkopf in Thumersbach for enthusiasts. The tour is leading through a wonderful landscape and relatively easy with 500m of altitude difference and a length of 2.500m. You'll love the view at the Schmitten, the Hohe Tauern and Zell am See.
