The Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area, located near Zell am See offers 41 km of slopes from 1,978 to 3,029m above sea level.

As it is a glacier it is open for skiing for most of the year (generally from October to July) and therefore very snow sure in winter. There are lots of wide slopes suitable for beginners, as well as some tricky black slopes for expert skiers, like the infamous Black Mamba with its leg burning maximum gradient of 63%.

The state-of-the-art lift system ensures that there is little queueing despite the popularity of the area with skiers from around Europe.

There are also dedicated freeride zones, a 1km fun slope known as the ‘Eagle Line’ and an excellent snow park with superpipe as well as a cross-country track.

You can enjoy the view from the highest viewing platform in the Salzburg area at Gipfelwelt 3000 which also offers a National Park gallery and cinema showing a 10-minute film all about the area and an excellent panoramic restaurant.

Après ski

The Ice Camp, a temporary ice structure that is rebuilt every winter at 2,600m, is a great place to relax with a drink and enjoy the music.

For a livelier atmosphere stop off at the Häuslalm umbrella bar on your last run down and/or at the bar at the base station.

In the evening you can head into Zell am See where there are a number of lively bars and good restaurants.
