Zell am See: the place for lakeside skiing
Situated in the state of Salzburg, Zell am See sits on the banks of its namesake lake. The town is a good size, similar to that of Chamonix, and has both a ski resort and a thermal spa resort.
A highly practical resort that has it all
Skiers can access the ski area directly from the centre of Zell am See or from certain districts. They can also access the Kitzsteinhorn glacier, where they’ll be met with some stunning views.
Good to know: Zell am See is linked to the ski area of Schmitten
To broaden their snow-covered playground and make the most of the equipment they’ve picked out in the ski hire shops, skiers can head to the Schmitten ski area, with its ski lifts and 50 forest runs.
What’s there to do in Zell am See?
In addition to its vast 130-kilometre ski area, skiers will have access to several sports zones, such as the half-pipe and the timed ski run, as well as to carving spots, and the thermal spa and its facilities. They’ll also have the chance to kit themselves out in a ski hire shop located right on the slopes, or to test the latest ski-lift innovations, like those on the Sonnenalm chairlift, which has heated seats and a protective dome.
Set within the heart of a magnificent valley, the Zell am See resort is highly popular thanks to its range of amenities and services, including skiing lessons, sports facilities and ski hire, but also its dynamic and hospitable atmosphere.
