Why choose Zell am See?

Treat your students to some of the most spectacular scenery in Austria. The skiers’ paradise of Zell am See is as popular as ever, providing a great range of group-friendly accommodation in its surrounding villages, which lie within a short coach journey of the slopes.

Your lift pass gives you access to the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier, offering guaranteed good conditions from November to June. You’ll also find a wide range of leisure facilities to keep your group occupied around the clock. The beautiful lakeside location of Zell am See features a pedestrianised centre with a variety of great après-ski bars, cafés, shops and restaurants.

Nestling amid spectacular mountain scenery, at the foot of the Grossglockner High Alpine Road, the small village of Fusch is a favourite with our groups. While amenities here are limited, Zell am See is just a short drive away. For groups staying in Piesendorf, in the Pinzgau Valley, both the lifts and the après-ski facilities of Zell am See and Kaprun are within easy reach.

 

On the piste

Groups of beginners tend to spend their first few days finding their feet in the Zell am See ski area, which they can access via the Areitbahn Gondola. Wide-open runs around the back of the Schmittenhöhe let beginners build confidence, while more experienced skiers venture over to the Sonnkogel, which is linked to the Schmittenhöhe.

Kaprun’s gentle nursery slopes help beginners improve their technique before moving on to the higher slopes of the Maiskogel or the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier – a great snow-sure Easter skiing destination, which offers spectacular views over Höhe Tauern National Park.
