Skiing in the Zell am See Area - over 350km of snow-sure piste in 3 areas including glacier skiing at over 3000m
Zell am See is an excellent base for a winter sports holiday. It's not just a great ski resort, it's a lively but traditional Austrian town with a wealth of character and atmospere.
Zell has its own excellent ski area but it is also has access to the neighbouring ski areas of Kaprun, Saalbach and Hinterglemm on the same lift pass.The town itself is right on the edge of a beautiful lake which in the depths of winter is frozen and snow covered. The resort caters for families and those who want to live it up a bit. There is an abundance of great restaurants and bars and a big leisure complex with indoor pools, sauna, steam room, and an ice skating rink.
Skiing Info: Although the town is at a fairly low altitude its position makes it a pretty snow-sure resort, with runs up to an altitide of 2100m and a massive snow cannon network just in case! Zell am See has great skiing and boarding for all levels, the lift system has been upgraded and collects you in high speed comfort right from the centre of the town. Lift passes come at half price for kids, right up to 16 years, which can be a huge saving for families with teenagers.
