Visitor Reviews of Kaprun

We have been coming here for 4 years now and it just gets better. 2019 season here we come! So much to do, so many ski areas within 5 minutes or max 30 mins from Kaprun center if you want a change: Zell am See, Saalbach- Hinterglemm and Kaprun. This is a lovely village with great restaurants and bars plus lovely people. Zell close for nightlife if wanted (the bars in Kaprun can be pretty lively).
Always snow sure with the glacier (Kitzsteinhorn). We love a day on Maiskogel and with the new gondola it's easy for non-skier and beginners (no manoeuvring off the chair lift - lol). Agree with others that it's more beginner-intermediate. But that's what I am and I ski with a replaced hip so I avoid blacks anyway as I don't want anything too challenging :)
