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.
