What's it like at Zell am See resort?
An old city of stately buildings, Zell am See is a delightful place to stroll in, when you are not skiing. The town sits on a mini-peninsula that juts into a pretty alpine lake. Above the town of Zell am See is the Schmittenhöhe (Schmittenhoehe) ski area, with 46 miles (77 kms) of groomed slopes in open snowfields at the top and trails through the trees on lower sections. But this is only part of the attraction. Zell (Zell am See) is partnered with Kaprun and marketed with the smaller village as the Zell am See-Kaprun region. Kaprun (10 minutes away by bus) has vast snowfields on the glacier under the Kitzsteinhorn mountain. Statistics for the overall region include 80 miles of marked trails, 56 lifts, a highest vertical of more than 2270 metres and a longest run of six kilometres. The nearest airport for Zell am See is Salzburg.

Visitor Reviews of Zell am See
peter from United Kingdom writes:
Was in Zell for the first time just as Covid came. Weren't blessed with great weather, couple of near whiteout days, but plenty of skiing including a day at the glacier, another at MariaAlm, and the links to Saalbach means there's ample variety to keep a reasonable intermediate busy for a full week. But there's more to Zell than just its pistes. Its stunning lakeside location, pretty streets and alleyways and ample apres-ski life make it perhaps the best all-round ski destination I've ever visited. And it's Austria, and they know how to party in a way that no other European destination does. I'll definitely return.
