Visitor Reviews of Kaprun

Nick Russill from United Kingdom writes:

I've just returned from Kaprun after a couple of days spent taking advantage of the superb snow conditions following recent heavy snowfall.
The resort has come on a lot since I last visited around ten years ago and the addition this year (2015) of the new Gletscherjet 3 + 4 lifts mean much less time spent queueing; spectacular views all the way up to 3000m.
