Skiing in Zell am See-Kaprun

The boards that mean the world- Family ski holiday in the Salzburg mountains 

What is needed for a perfect ski holiday in Austria's mountains? We can think of many factors. First of all, we need a cosy hotel for relaxation and chilling out after a day of skiing. The ski pistes, freeride routes, parks and pipes are crucial factors during the day. Après ski huts, bars and restaurants at the end of the day decide whether the evening brings what the day has promised. Ski hire, ski schools, ski guides and various other facilities complement the package and make your ski holiday in the region of Zell am See-Kaprun just what you have been looking forward to all year long. We wish you a wonderful ski holiday!

Freedom on the mountains: Freeride, Snow parks & Co.

Do you want to feel the freedom in the backcountry or do you prefer to play with the flying power in the snow parks of Zell am See-Kaprun? On the freeride routes in the Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area, full-blooded freeride skiers and snowboarders will get their money's worth. Ski guides and mountain guides will show you the best lines and "secret spots" in the mountains of the region. Freestylers with twin tips or snowboards are looking forward to world class snowparks on the Schmittenhöhe and Kitzsteinhorn as well as on a 160 m long superpipe in the glacier area. First small jumps, imposing curves and lots of action for young and old await you in the Funslope XXL on the Schmittenhöhe or on the Eagle Line in the Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area.
