Kitzsteinhorn, Zell am See

(4.6/5 based on 1,000+ 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.

  • The Kitzsteinhorn total I liked,(Fernsicht, Die gute Luft,Super Pisten,Tolle Hütten Einfach Super!)

  • Long range from the slopes. Many levels of the rolling hills and several levels of skiers. Because of the piste was busy got to be sometimes cautious even though the slope should be a clear set of rules. Takaatuleva Dodge. The views were great when the Sun was shining was very far away. Lifts operate flexibly and long queues. Lunch spots was very available and food was quick. We lived in Zell am see, so it took half an hour by bus. All in all a positive experience.

  • Also a day from Zell am See to the Kitzsteinhorn. The ski resort is still a 10-minute drive from the village of Kaprun. Parking is well arranged, parking point you the way. Then with two lifts up, on your ski pass you are allowed 1 x per day the elevator and to the glacier. The area is beautiful, with wide pistes, the signage of the runs we found less. It was sometimes not easy to find. Also outside of the holidays very busy and you miss a bit the Austrian provincial here. It's all very new and modern. At the top you have a beautiful panoramic terrace with wonderful views. Consider the height, not everyone can equally well here. We found it a nice area for a day, not a week here by.

  • 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.
