Zell am See was the second and definitely the prettiest lake-side ski resort we ever sold. With its close proximity to the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier in Kaprun, Zell offers snow-sure skiing. This historic medieval town, with its traffic free area offers a great night life.

The 120km of ski slopes are ideally suited to most South African skiers with varied slopes that give easy access to mountain hut / restaurants and a good modern lift system. As a beginner your ski lessons will be held at the middle station so you get to experience the mountain atmosphere from day one.

A must for any Zell trip is an afternoon at Schnap- Hans Bar at the top of Schmittenhohe (2000m) where you can see your neighbours in Saalbach, or gaze across to the Kitzsteinhorn glacier: (word on the street is that a connection for Zell and Saalbach may be on the cards – let’s hold thumbs for this move.)
When the sun goes down and the slopes empty the bars, restaurants and clubs come to life keeping with a ski Austrian atmosphere mixed with the international guest flavours. No trip to Zell is complete without a visit to Gin House and Crazy Daisy.

Zell Am See is a hosted ski resort of ours with a SA representative over the high season that looks after our guests and runs our entertainment programme, tobogganing and dinners at the restaurants you don’t want to miss. (Included in your ski pass and joined by a free ski bus).
