The skiing areas around Kaprun and Zell am See are counted amongst the ones that lie in places with the best guarantee of snow in Austria. Skiing can be enjoyed on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier throughout the year. Generally the ski lifts on the Kitzsteinhorn are open up to ten months a year. However the natural snow guarantee is not only valid for the glacier but also for other areas in and around Kaprun/Zell am See.

With the aid of state-of-the-art snowmaking machines in many cases wonderful skiing is guaranteed in the Salzburg Alps despite the lack of help from above. And in any case the close proximity of the ski area on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier is a huge point in its favour as well as for boundless fun in the snow there.
Even though the course of the glacier on the Kitzsteinhorn stretches down 169 m and the lowest point lies at 2,800 m snow cannons are used on the lower regions to ensure the snow cover. On the Maiskogel, a particularly family-friendly ski area in the centre of Kaprun, there are 68 ha of tracks covered, when necessary, with artificial snow, and beautifully prepared just waiting for enterprising skiers and snowboarders. Here beginners and experts alike can find perfect conditions for a great skiing holiday in the Salzburger Land region.
Zell am See is just a few minutes by car from Kaprun and easy to reach. Also our own ski bus commutes regularly joining the two ski resorts Kaprun and Zell am See. Holiday skiers in the Salzburger Land will find the “Schmitten” right in Zell am See. This is a mountain where the snow cover is particularly guaranteed as literally all of the 77 km of track can be covered with artificial snow. In all there are 44 snow cannons and 295 snow lances available for the production of artificial snow.
