Winter Holiday Zell am See-Kaprun

Winter in the Salzburger Land - ski holiday, fun in the snow, many culinary delights & plenty of winter sport in Zell am See-Kaprun

It is bitterly cold. Winter spreads a frozen blanket mercilessly over the valleys and mountains of the Salzburger Land. When the sun rises in mid-winter and the negligible power of the sunshine lets the snow and ice glisten, that is the start of beautiful days of skiing start in the ski resorts. You are still sitting sleepy-eyed at the breakfast table at your accommodation and provide yourself with the energy you need for a fantastic day. Mountain railways, gondolas and chairlifts slowly start their service in the morning cold at the same time. Your breath comes out as clouds of steam and the sunshine hits the mountain slopes and ski pistes at an angle, signalling wonderful conditions for skiing and snowboarding. Providing top conditions for freeriding, winter hiking or extensive ski tours, fresh powder snow is waiting away from the ski pistes. The winter day can start. The ski pistes of the three ski resorts around Zell am See-Kaprun, the cross-country ski tracks and the toboggan runs have been well looked after. They are waiting well-groomed and with beautiful snow for you, your children, friends and your top-serviced sports equipment.


The boards that mean the world

These boards we talk about here have a very special meaning for the Zell am See-Kaprun region. Skiing has made this winter sports region in the Salzburger Land famous and popular. Ski resorts famous across the world have been developed in the mountains and at the glacier between Zell am See and Kaprun and provide sensational ski holidays, winter sport and skiing pleasure today more than ever. And it is no longer "just" about skiing on well-groomed pistes. You will look for "secret lines" and "first turns" in pristine powder snow when freeriding. The region's snow parks and fun slopes are the meeting point if you have great tricks and "fat airs" in mind. Red, black and real expert pistes are reserved for everyone with plenty of experience on skis and snowboards. Anyone who still needs practice and experience books with one of the ski schools and goes out and about with expert ski instructors. You meet up again for après ski and at cosy huts and in bars, and together you conclude that skiing and snowboarding in Zell am See-Kaprun is simply fantastic ...


Not only the ski pistes ...

... offer excitement in Zell am See-Kaprun in winter. Even though the ski resorts, mountains and ski pistes are quite something, the "adventure region" in the Salzburger Land offers plenty of other experiences for you on your winter holiday. Exploring the cross-country ski tracks around Kaprun, Bruck, Schüttdorf and Zell am See, you are also out and about on two skis. Classic or skating style, you take your laps at a dynamic pace across the wonderful network of cross-country ski tracks. The night cross-country ski tracks and the high-altitude cross-country ski tracks on the mountains are very special challenges. Skiers who work out their own downhill runs, advancing into areas where no lift and mountain railway can take you, go ski touring. Many great ski tours from easy to challenging and a designated "ski touring mountain" at the Ronachkopf in Thumersbach make it clear from the start: ski touring is hard to beat when it comes to popularity. So, get your skins on, click the ski fittings to "go" and off you go on a tour into the backcountry between Hohe Tauern and the Pinzgau Grass Hills. If you are not so keen on exciting ski downhill runs but still want to advance into the wintry mountains' nature, then you go out and about on snowshoes and in winter hiking boots.
