Zell am See Ski Resort

The official figures put the extent of the ski area as average- 145kms of piste and 33 lifts. This appears bigger in reality because of the horizontal and vertical scope of the runs. There are good ski schools here with a wide range of runs for skiers. Advanced skiers can use the resort’s high lifts if they desire off-piste for freeriding and ski touring with a guide. Bold skiers have more options if they opt for the Ötztal Super Skipass which gives access to 5 other ski areas, together with Obergurgl-Hochgurgl, which is a 25-minute drive away.

Where to stay

There’s a wide choice of hotels in Zell am See, mainly three- and four-stars, including some very sumptuous options. Apartments can be booked locally but aren’t featured by most UK tour operators. The best place to stay is in or near the picturesque car-free medieval centre with its splendid church, a short walk from the central CityXpress gondola and the local Schmittenhöhe ski area.
