Why Choose This Trip?

 

This trip appeals to non-skiers as well as the hard-core skiers, and every level in between. 

 

Zell am See is a picturesque town located on the shore of the Zeller See (Lake Zell) AUSTRIA and is surrounded by the Hohe Tauern mountain range.  We fly direct into Munich then take a short 2 hour private bus ride to the resort.

 

After two years of holding back we are eager for international travel again and Austria is welcoming fully vaccinated US tourists.   Join us for incredible skiing and safe touring around Zell am See Kaprun where we will have access to 408 km of slopes, more than 47 modern ski lifts and lots of optional day tours for non-skiers (and skiers.)

Ski areas are: 

  • Schmittenhohe – perched high above Lake Zell with lifts within easy walking access from our hotel.
  • Maiskogel – where the longest slope is 7KM, over 4 miles!
  • Kitzsteinhorn Glacier – Austria’s first glacier ski resort is legendary.  This glacier area extends up to 3,203 m above sea level. The Kitzsteinhorn is also a renowned hotspot for free riders and freestylers.

Equipment Rental

Do you love your own skis but are not comfortable schlepping them on an international trip?  No problem.  Zell-am-See has a wonderful ski rental program where we can rent at any of the local INTERSPORT shops at the ski areas or in the town shop and turn the skis in after skiing each day at one area and then pick up a new pair at the next area. We just wear après-ski and leave them at the shop while skiing (or just wear your ski boots.)

 

Top quality rental equipment is available, and all can be done in advance on line. (We are currently working on the online booking arrangements and discounted rates for SCSC/TSC participants.)
