Located on the shores of a lake, Zell am See is a delightful town with an historic centre. As part of the Europa Sports Region it offers almost one hundred and forty kilometres of piste. The resort lies at an altitude of seven hundred and sixty metres and the highest lift takes you to over three thousand metres bside the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier. Zell am See is an ideal destination for groups with non-skiers in their party as the medieval town, with its pedestrianised centre, is a pleasure to explore and there is much to see and do.

Novices have easy runs above Schttdorf and at the top of the Cityxpress lift. With the aid of good tuition, they will soon find their ski legs. Intermediates have a very wide choice of reds and blues and if they are looking for a long descent they'll enjoy the eight kilometre run from Schmittenhohe down to the resort.
