ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
During this trip, you’ll spend six days exploring the varied terrain that Zell am See has to offer and enjoying spectacular views of Lake Zell from the mountain with other Ski Club Members of a similar ski profile who have also booked this Freshtracks trip. This trip is aimed at Intermediate (Red) and Advanced Intermediate (Silver) on piste skiers. If you are unsure of your ski level, please see our Ski Profile Page. At the end of the week, you’ll receive an updated grading from your Ski Club Rep.
You will be staying in the excellent Sporthotel Alpin 4* in a single room on a half board basis. The hotel is situated right in the centre of Zell am See and is ski in ski out. Newly refurbished rooms and a pool and sauna at the hotel make this the perfect place to unwind after a long day on the hill.
This holiday includes both your flights and transfers. The flights are with British Airways and depart from London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 to Salzburg. Ski carriage is payable at the airport only and cannot be pre-booked. Your Ski Club Rep will coordinate the coach transfer from the airport, so please look out for them in the main arrivals hall – they will be wearing their blue Ski Club jacket. Transfers to and from resort will take approximately 1.5 hours.
If these travel arrangements are not convenient, you may be eligible to organise your own travel and receive a nominal discount from the holiday cost. Furthermore, if you can find alternative flights that coincide with our flight times then you can meet the group at the airport and take our transfer to resort. Please contact the Freshtracks office on 020 8410 2022 to discuss this further.
Zell am See has a great reputation for its alpine charm with a modern skiing twist. It’s location near the picturesque local Lake Zell and the historic architecture makes it the perfect base for admiring the view when you’re not skiing too! Nearby Kaprun and Saalbach are only a bus ride away so there’s plenty of ski area to explore outside of Zell am See too.
The dominating mountain of Schmittenhohe overlooks the village and offers stunning views of a cluster of towering mountains surrounding the area. This, combined with great off slope activities and après, makes it a great destination for a mix of tourists that visit the Austrian resort. For more information about Zell am See, please visit the Zell am See Resort Guide.
The SkiSet shop, Treffpunkt Eurosport, is 7 minutes walk from the hotel and offers Ski Club members a discount (up to 25% if pre-booked online at skiclub.co.uk via the Save Money section and up to 15% in resort.)
