Skiing & boarding in Zell am See
A ski holiday in Salzburger Land – 350 m from the slopes
Start your skiing adventure from the comfort of our KINDERHOTEL Zell am See. In just a few minutes on foot or two minutes on our ski shuttle you reach the valley station “areitXpress” of the Schmittenhöhe ski area. Ski rental and children’s ski school are right nearby. Zell’s local mountain offers a variety of fun on the slopes in winter on around 77 km of pistes. From the top you can enjoy the splendid view of 30 peaks of 3,000 m in height.
The Schmitten – THE mountain for families in Salzburg
The youngsters playfully learn to ski on the magic carpet or in Schmidolin’s dragon tunnel. Older children can show off their skills in Schmidolin’s dragon park on the wave run and between the archways. The chairlifts are particularly child-friendly. Well-qualified ski instructors teach the kids how to ski in the two ski school kinderlands – it’s much more fun learning as a group.
The Glacier – Kitzsteinhorn
Starting from October, you experience Salzburg’s earliest start to the season in the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier ski resort. Top-modern mountain railways and Salzburg’s highest-situated chairlift take you uphill to over 3.000 metres. You carve your turns in the snow on wide, open glacier slopes, through pristine powder snow or across the region’s steepest piste. Enjoy the first fresh snow of the skiing season and benefit from 100% snow-reliability between October and June on ski touring routes, in the first-class snow parks and on the glacier cross-country ski track in 2.900 m above sea level.
