Ski winter in Zell am See-Kaprun
The ski pass Zell am See-Kaprun is the key for 50 cable cars and lifts and 138 km of pistes in Kaprun and Zell am See.
Glacier firn & summer experience
Luscious green in the valley, sparkling white on the Kitzsteinhorn. Skiers and snowboarders will find glistening firn-coverd slopes until early summer. Even in summer the Kitzsteinhorn invites with its bright and sunny glacier runs. In Austria’s first glacier ski region at the Kitzsteinhorn the cable cars and lifts are opened until mid of july for all skiers and snowboarders.
*Please note: The operating hours of the glacier lifts depend on weather, snow and operating conditions. Ski lifts are operating at sufficient snow conditions until 9th june 2014 and again from 27th june 2014 to 20th july 2014 and again from mid/end of September. For hikers and day guests (non-skiers) the Kitzsteinhorn is opened all year round.
The peak of culinary delight
Every restaurant on the Kitzsteinhorn is as unique as every snow crystal. The cuisine is so rich in variety - from the cafe bar by the valley terminal at 900m, to Salzburg's highest restaurant, the Gipfel Restaurant, at 3.029 metres. There is everything the heart desires - a variety of breakfasts, international classical cuisine, traditional Austrian fare and hommade cakes from the Kitzsteinhorn confectionery.
Skiing in Autumn
The glacier in Kaprun offers already perfect conditions and slopes for skiers and boarders in autumn. Superb natural snow pistes and a fantastic panoramic view of the mountain world surrounding the Kitzsteinhorn awaits you.
The Glacier Park (at 2.900m) with its different obstacles, which were largely hand made by the finest work of the Kitzsteinhorn crew, open its doors already in october.
Fireworks of Events
The countless autum and early winter events in the white glacier snow are as colourful as the autumn leaves in the valley. The traditional “White Start Games”, a sporty weekend with first class side events, heralds the beginning of the winter season
