The Zell am See – Kaprun region is one of the leading skiing destinations of Austria. Unique, fantastic ski slopes and grand lakes ensure that the tourist season lasts almost all year.
Kitzsteinhorn ski resort piste map and opening hours – Kitzsteinhorn
The Kitzsteinhorn glacier enables skiing in Kaprun for 10 months of the year, from September to June. The resort of Zell am Seebeautifully located by Lake Zell, at an altitude of m above sea level, along with the nearby village of Kaprun, creates one of the most popular and renowned ski areas in Austria.
The surrounding views are considered to be the most beautiful in Austria. Thanks to very diverse runs, the ski area in Zell am See is perfectly suited for both beginners and for families with young children, freestylers and those who ski only down black routes. Advanced skiers can get a lot of enjoyment out of it for a large part of the day.
Ski lovers have a choice of 77 km of pistes. On Schmittenhohe there are numerous ski rentals and ski schools for both adults and children.
Toddlers can also be safely left at the nursery or the ski kindergarten. You should steer clear of areas around routes 1 and 2 – there are usually huge crowds there because of groups of learning beginners. In Zell am See skiing is possible from November to mid-April, also at night down the 4-km route. Hearing the name Kaprun, most ski enthusiasts will immediately think of Kitzsteinhorn, the first glacier in Austria, on which a resort was built in It rises to a height of 3, m above sea level, while the highest terrain available to skiers is located at an altitude of 2, m above sea level.
Thanks to that the ski season in Kitzsteinhorn lasts for ten months – lifts operate from mid-September to mid-July. The glacier offers skiers 22 km of blue runs, 16 km of red runs and 3 km of black trails, which amounts to a total of 41 km of perfectly prepared pistes.
Beginners and adults spending their winter holidays with children will enjoy the second ski area in Kaprun, the family mountain of Maiskogel 1, m. You can ski down 21 km of slopes here from early December to mid-April. The inexpensive ski passes valid only on Maiskogel and a large number of parking spaces attract a lot of skiers. On Maiskogel there are ski schools for children, and the restaurants offer kids menus.
At an altitude of 2, m above sea level, a nearly 3-kilometer cross-country trail has been set, where – starting from autumn – cross-country skiers meet, attracted by the fame of the glacier. Although the slopes on Schmittenhoehe, the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier and Maiskogel amount to over km of slopes, you can find more trails in Saalbach Hinterglemm, which is just 20 minutes away by car.
The region consists of two main towns: Zell am See, situated on a peninsula on the lake, and Kaprunjust 5 km from the glacier. Zell am See has a typical city atmosphere, which is embodied by the very modern district of Schuettdorf. On the other hand, it also has a charming old town and a beautiful promenade by the lake. Kaprun, which is smaller, is more like a cozy, alpine resort. Skiers also often stay in the villages of Piesendorf and Bruck an der Grossglocknerstrasse.
A great base if you want to travel. I have nothing negative to say about Kaprun. Have been to Zell am See 4 times skiing. While the snow can be a little unpredictable lower down, it does tend to be good on the upper slopes. The nightlife is excellent and restaurants plentiful offering great value.
Superb for any age be you a skier or just there to chill out. Would highly recommend it as a resort for 1st couple of years but as you improve you will find that the slopes aren’t challenging enough so perhaps hit the Kaprun Glacier for a few days, its only ten minutes away. I liked the hospitaly of my gashtof wieshof, he gives fair prices for the service.
The only bad surprise we had, was that it is impossible to pay for a chek-out at night, because the boss ”just left and it is not acceptable for employee to take money”. Yes i choose again thiw resort for my family vacations. For skiers that enjoy black runs there are not many but you can still get a lot out of the holiday. You can easily do all the runs in one week. Although you can do many long blue runs onto blacks so you get a good warm up to the actuall run that you want to do.
Ski-bus service is not reliable Kaprun. It is not balanced i. Break-off of the bus is making a mess because no replacement. I liked the town as there was a good athmosphere.
Food in restuarants was excellent. The snow was good but a little icy at times. I would choose this resort again and would also recommend it for summer also. Easy accesible by train from Salburg 1hr. Would definitely come back again New park near the Maiskogel for the children was very good. Buses to the Kitzsteinhorn were a bit busy, but as we were always the first to get on Traunerthen it was not a problem for us.
In Kaprun the public gym is very small and expensive. If the weather is good there is a lot of things to do in summer: There amp not so much indoor activities. We travelled to Zell am See during a summer vacation and it has great opportunities for walking in the mountains, swimming, bicycling and lots of other activities. Or just enjoy the mountain views from a boat on the lake. The Kitzsteinhorn Glacier was great, we had lots of fun and will definately come back.
Kaprun resort was rather poor in off-piste entertainment, but this wasn’t what we went there for, so it didn’t really bother us.
Resort is not a bigest one among other resorts, but if you are travelling by car it is possible to choose different places for skiing every day. I like this resort but next year I will try different resort in Austria Juris.
This town is a little gem, we have visited this resort on and off for 25 years. The resort has everything you need not just in the winter but also summer. I cannot fault this resort we absolutely love it. I have been skiing in Zell for the past 6 years and will continue to do so in the future. Everything I need for a good skiing holiday is there. Good skiing, friendly people and a great night life.
I think our comments speak for themselves, this will be the fourth time we have stayed at this hotel and have travelled to this resort on and off for the last 20 years both in summer and winter. The slopes were good. At least three good alternative to take you down to the valley.
And at least two to take you to the summit. Cross country skiing was poor and dificult to reach. Great little resort, fantastic skiing, extremely friendly staff in the hire shop at the bottom of the lift. Would love to visit again in summer and winter Daniel.
Ski map Zell am See – Kaprun (Austria)
I would mapp to stay there longer next time, to take advantage of some other kapgun that are in the offer, and to enjoy the general beauty of the area.
It snowed during our stay and the slopes weren’t perfect after 12 pm. I was expecting to be arranged.
We have been to Kaprun several times. Everything is easy to reach. A great problem for the skiing area – the absence of chairlifts on the top of the hill. Rope tows are not comfortable thing for children and begginers. Again we love this area as you are guaranteed snow because of the Glacier. The facilities up on the glacier are excellent and the food marvellous.
Pobyt w listopadzie to nuda przed sezonem. The lack of apres-ski area’s at the end of the slope kzprun there was no meeting point with an atmosphere to meet and relax after skiing David.
Fantastic views from Glacier and above Zell am See, very good and efficient restaurants on mountains and very little queueing. I would suggest that visitors hire a car – oaprun are very expensive and the buses end running very early – usually around 7pm.
