At the top of the Kitzsteinhorn glacier the ice glitters at over 3,000 meters above sea level, while down in the valley the frozen Lake Zell sparkles in the sun. Above, below or in between: an adventure playground awaits. Three ski resorts are waiting for you, only minutes from the VAYA Zell am See, it is only a few steps to the gondola lift, which takes you up to the Schmittenhöhe ski area and then it connects to the Maiskogel and the Kitzsteinhorn ski areas.
Ski- & snowboard paradise
Experienced winter sports fans will get their money’s worth here, as well as those who are still new to skiing or snowboarding. For your unforgettable family holiday in winter, there are excellent facilities for children, such as professional childcare and ski schools, which offer a program tailored to every age group. Excursions, competitions and special obstacle courses make for tired, but happy and satisfied children. If the three in-house ski resorts are not enough for you, that’s no problem. Since Zell am See belongs to the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, the place is part of the largest contiguous ski area in Austria.
Zell am See is not only a paradise for ski and snowboard enthusiasts. Here you can also experience a fantastic winter holiday away from the slopes. Glide silently on our cross-country ski trails through the enchanted winter landscape – on the night trail you can even skate through the glittering snow under floodlights.
Or experience the mountains on the wild side! How about, a toboggan ride on the natural toboggan run on the Kitzsteinhorn or on the Schmittenhöhe? It’s even faster at the “Alpine Coaster Maisflitzer”. This is the first year-round Alpine roller coaster where you whizz down the mountain at 40 kmph, a thrill for young and old.
Other winter activities in Zell am See are ski tours and snowshoe hiking routes. Particularly popular are trips to the ICE CAMP on the Kitzsteinhorn or a high-altitude walk on the Schmittenhöhe mountain where Europe’s largest open-air art space with more than 29 oversized sculptures awaits you. For a bad weather program, try a visit to the TAUERN SPA Zell am See.
