Kitzsteinhorn, Zell am See
(4.6/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Ski, snowboard, and hike on the wide glacial slopes of Kitzsteinhorn. Use the railway to reach the summit at 3,035 m (9,957 ft) above sea level. Find the logbook in the cabinet attached to the iron cross, and leave a personal note. Trek down the sides of the mountain, but look out for snow holes and slippery slopes. Enjoy music, drinks, and snacks at the bar or the huge sun deck at 2,500 m (8,202ft) above sea level. The snow park features various rails, tubes, wall rides, and kicker lines for beginners and pros. Some tracks occasionally close because of strong winds. For Kitzsteinhorn and beyond, use our Zell am See itinerary maker to get the most from your Zell am See vacation.

  • Great skiing and good bus service from Zell. Restaurants very busy and expensive. Piste very well maintained and ski slalom (timed) was fantastic. 
  • We are already here any time starting with the ski season in November. Conditions of course depending on the weather. This year the big snowfall seems slightly surprised them. Routes were not adequately prepared and people gathered to really a lot. Despite this, nice resort but not for beginners and very young children.

  • We were with the summer card free on the Kitzsteinhorn mountain, 3 different cabins to enjoy the beautiful view ultimately on the panorama terrace on more than 3'000 m high. Vista was sensational experience on over 300 m was incredible. The tunnel, the observation deck, the movie... everything TOP

  • We were there in the summer. To get to the top you need to take a bus and then cable car. There are amazing mountain views from Kitzsteinhorn, unless there is cloudy so that you see nothing arround you. Glacier let's your kid take some sledge rides in the snow while you're enjoying coffee and doughnut.
  • Open all the year, cool freeride posibilities
  • Wonderful view, there's snow year-round.
  • Nice place for skiing however there were too many skiers sometimes during our spring skiing. Due to fresh snow pistes were not very well maintained. There are also places here for freeride.
  • The cable car ride is awesome. The climate right now was just right with the temperatures still manageable. During winters it is freezing cold. The top most point was indeed cold even now. The experience of snow is awesome. The view from the top of salzburg is amazing.
