Zell am See

The Zell am See-Kaprun ski area is most famously known for the Schmittenhöhe mountain in Zell am See and the Kitzsteinhorn glacier at nearby Kaprun which are conveniently linked by a free ski bus. The panoramic viewing platform 'Top of Salzburg' is a must with spectacular scenery at 3029m above sea level. Zell am See's pedestrianised town centre is perched on the edge of Lake Zell and the atmosphere is boosted by regular music events and festivals. Families are well catered for with a dedicated kid’s slope on the Schmittenhöhe in Zell featuring a combination of obstacles, tunnels and slalom course, and Kaprun’s Maiskogel mountain which is home to wide open, gentle slopes for learning and special kids’ meals at local restaurants.

Alpin Card

The Alpin Card covers three regions on one pass, giving you access to 408km of premium slopes and 121 lifts. Alongside the Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See, you also get access to the Kitzsteinhorn in Kaprun and Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Ski Circus.

Access 270km of Skiing in Saalbach & Hinterglemm

From 7th December 2019 a new modern lift included in the Alpin Card will connect the 138km ski area of Zell am See to the 270km ski area of Saalbach & Hinterglemm. Giving you access to the vast skiing landscape of Zell am See's neighboring region. From Schmittenhöhe mountain (Zell am See) side it is possible to ski down to the middle station, then either take the prepared ski route to the bottom or take the section 1 gondola. Once at the bottom it is a short 5 minute bus which runs every 20 minutes to Saalbach. On return you can choose to ski back to the Zell connection lift or return on the shuttle bus.
