Ski and Snowboard
Zell am See/Kaprun - The vast Zell am See-Kaprun skiing area is perfectly suited for professional skiers / snowboarders and beginners alike. Both the Schmittenhöhe and the Kitzsteinhorn promise pure skiing enjoyment on diverse ski slopes in the midst of snowy mountain landscapes. The Schmitten & Maiskogel are the perfect location for skiing families.
Salbach/HinterGlem SkiCircus - 200 km of prepared slopes, 55 modern cable cars and lifts, 10 km cross-country tracks , snow parks, SkiMovie courses, speed courses, Learn-to-Ride park, playgrounds Now, carving slopes, GS race courses, flood-lit slope, moguls and un-groomed slopes and much much more.
Ice Skating - If the temperature is low enough you can experience the delights of ice skating on the frozen Lake Zell, otherwise you can visit the local ice arena to skate or watch the local Zell am See ice hockey team play in the Austrian league.
Cross Country Skiing - As far as the eye can see, cross-country trails of a total of 40 kilometres in length wind their way all through Zell am See-Kaprun and into the neighbouring regions.
Tobogganing - There are many tobogganing runs in the Zell am See area that can be enjoyed by all the family. The floodlit night run accessible by special bus is particularly spectacular.
Snow Shoeing - Guided winter hiking and snow shoeing tours of the Schmiten are available from the local Ski Schools.
Wellness/Spa - There are several spa and wellness centres in Zell am See and the surrounding area, we would recommend the Salzbergerhof Hotel and Tauren Spa at Kaprun.
Opening hours are much more restrictive than in the UK, so assume that all grocery shops are closed on Saturday afternoons, Sundays and public holidays although some shops may open for a couple of hours in the morning.
For late nights, Sundays and public holidays the Jet petrol station (Brucker Bundes Strasse 108) has a limited selection of basics but you can get milk,bread etc.
Billa: located in pedestrian area a short walk from the apartment, opens at 7am daily (except Sunday & holidays). This is a very well stocked shop.
Spar: on Brucker BundesStrasse. This is closer and recently upgraded but in our opinion does not quite have the selection of the Billa.
Vegetable shop: An excellent shop on Schlossplatz.Also has good selection of Asian goods.
Bakeries: Open early (not on holidays), most at 6.45 -7am so great for fresh bread & croissants & delicious pastries & cakes.
Delicatessens: Good cured meats etc available
Villa Crazy Daisy - opposite Grand Hotel – Good food and excellent après ski.
KupferKessler – Directly opposite apartment, good food and bar, also does takeaways.
Zum Hirschen – Excellent local cuisine situated in town centre

Hotel Salzbergerhof Spa is probably the best in Zell.
It is difficult to get a booking after skiing (this time tends to be reserved for residents) but at other times or outside the ski season, it is relatively easy to book.
