Zell am See-Kaprun Ski Resort
For Covid-19 resort information click here.
The pretty lakeside town of Zell am See-Kaprun has access to three varied mountains and plays host to a range of off-slope activities – it is therefore no surprise that this resort is such a favourite with Ski Club members.
The Skiing in Zell am See-Kaprun is perfect for beginners and intermediates, with some terrain suitable for more advanced skiers. Maiskogel’s locals’ hill, the incredibly snowsure Kitzsteinhorn glacier at Kaprun and the vast network of intermediate cruising at Saalbach – to which is will soon be linked to – are only a bus ride away, so there’s plenty of ski area to explore outside of Zell am See-Kaprun too. It’s no wonder the Ski Club Freshtracks holiday to Zell sold out months in advance!
Zell am See-Kaprun has a great reputation for its alpine charm with a modern skiing twist. Its location near the picturesque Lake Zell and the historic architecture make it an attractive base and a draw for non-skiers too. The dominating mountain of Schmittenhöhe overlooks the village and offers stunning views of the lake and towering glacial peaks surrounding the area.
If you’re visiting Zell am See-Kaprun this winter you’ll experience a significantly better connected ski area. The K-onnection cable car which opened in December 2019 is 12 kilometres up the mountain from the centre of Kaprun to the summit of Kitzsteinhorn. On top of this the first section of the zellamseeXpress was completed in time for the 2019/20 season and will allow skiers to reach the Schmittenhöhe for the first time from Zell am See-Kaprun.
To complement these lift upgrades, the Ski Alpin Card has been introduced for the new season. This will allow access to 408 kilometres of pistes and 121 lifts in Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See-Kaprun and Kitzsteinhorn Kaprun.
The Ski Club Rep Service will be in resort this year from January until March.
Our Zell am See-Kaprun Facebook Page is also one of the most active, possessing over 800 members, all of whom will be happy to help if you have a question or need some information.
