When the mountain tops shimmer white with snow, and the trees in the valley glitter with hoar frost, Zell am See presents itself in all its winter beauty.
The cable car to the wintersport paradise Schmittenhöhe is within walking distance of our Living Schönwies. The spectacular glacier of the Kitzsteinhorn and the beautiful peak of the Maiskogel both provide a breathtaking panoramic view in wintertime. Both can be reached with the skibus.
On the Schmittenhöhe, the "house-mountain" of Zell am See, guided snow shoe and winter hikes are offered.
For fans of cross country skiing there is a high altitude track (City Express) and also more than 100 miles of tracks in the valley. Some of them are lit at night.
If a balanced breakfast and a walk through the breathtaking landscape are not enough to wake you up, the 138 km of perfectly prepared slopes certainly will make endorphines and adrenaline rush through your body and drive the last bit of sleepiness away.
The alpine scenery provides the perfect route for everybody, no matter if you are a pro or a beginner, prefer the snowboard or the skis.
