Zell am See

Ski resorts in Austria
Zell am Zee was once similar to Åre and Davos, a spa and health resort where people went to relax and heal with the help of the clean air. The resort, with more than 9,000 inhabitants, is located by the lake Zeller See and near Kaprun, which has the snow-proof Austrian glacier system called Kitzsteinhorn at 9,900 feet above sea level.

As always, when in Austria, you will realize how big and how many mountains there are. You can almost always expect to have a backdrop of steep, rugged rock formations that eagerly reach towards the sky. This is one of Austria's major strengths.

Another strength is that the same mountains tend to always pressure the surrounding clouds with immediate results and they release their load. In the wintertime this results in a lot of snow and beautiful days.

When combined with a lake, as in this case, you run the risk of being subjected to a breathtaking beautiful environment that will make you want to take photos wherever you go. Therefore, it may be good to prepare with an extra external hard drive before the trip.
Zell am See includes the ski resorts Kaprun/Kitzsteinhorn, Kaprun/Maiskogel

Bets hard with new lifts every year. Kaprun is a very good alternative to staying in Zell.
