Our chalet is centrally located to multiple different ski areas offering varied terrain, that will leave you spoilt for choice when trying to decide where to spend each day skiing whilst on your holiday. With access to an incredible 408km of premium pistes, all of which are covered under the Ski Alpin Card, your holiday will be filled to the brim with alpine excitement irrespective of your skiing ability.
Our nearest lifts are just 10 minutes away - the AreitExpress connecting you to the Schmittenhöhe ski area of Zell am See, and the Maiskogelbahn which connects you to the Kitzsteinhorn ski area of Kaprun. The Saalbach Hinterglemm Ski Circus, which is considered Austria’s largest, is also just 20 minutes away. We offer ski service by appointment, subject to availability, so let us know if this is something that you would like to add to your holiday package.
SCHMITTENHÖHE OF ZELL AM SEE
77km of groomed tree-lined pistes, a charming lakeside alpine town, and an outlook towards some of the highest mountain peaks in Austria - welcome to the Austrian ski resort of Zell am See. The balanced mixture of blues, reds, blacks and off-piste challenges is sure to offer you a diverse skiing experience. You can even throw in some jump practice at one of the jump parks or fun slopes; test your racing speed at the Speed-Test Slalom, or your your control and nerves at the black 70% gradient Trass Downhill Challenge. Night skiing is available on certain days of the week, and there are also Night Shows where you can watch the pros perform.
KITZSTEINHORN OF KAPRUN
We all love the Kitzsteinhorn for its guaranteed snow all year round, as well as the added bonus of enabling those snow sports addicts among us to enjoy early and late season skiing too. As the Kitzsteinhorn is partly a glacier, it offers skiable terrain as early as October, through to the end of the season in May. The runs are varied, from easy family-friendly blues, to exhilarating freeride runs and off-piste possibilities. For the more daring among us, there are an abundance of kickers, rails & boxes across multiple parks to practice jumps & tricks. If you'd like to change it up, there are also multiple ski-touring routes waiting to be explored in the Kitzsteinhorn ski arena.
Austria's Largest Skicircus
Offering a whopping 270km of pistes , 70 lifts, and over 60 cosy alpine huts, it's no wonder that the Saalbach Hinterglemm Skicirucs is considered one of the largest and most diverse in Austria. The varied blues, reds, and blacks will keep you entertained for days on end. Like in the Schmittenhöhe and Kitzsteinhorn ski areas, there are also opportunities for night time skiing on flood-lit slopes, and sledging on on multiple groomed Rodelbahn tracks. Thanks to the new Zell am See Express, you can now ski over to the Saalbach Hinterglemm Skicircus from the Schmitten, making connection between the areas even more simple and easy.
