Kitzbühel Alps

In and around the Kitzbühel Alps you will find plenty of exciting ski areas for a variety of tastes. Beginners and families can enjoy wide, comfortable slopes, while experienced skiers and freeriders can be challenged in the many slopes selected for true professionals. You can explore the area all the way to the mountain Wilder Kaiser, to St. Johann in Tirol, and, of course, to Kitzbühel. Otherwise, let yourself be enchanted by the idyllic family ski area Kelchsau.


Zell am See and Schmittenhöhe

The small city of Zell am See has around 9,900 inhabitants and was a market until 1928. The local “house” mountain of Zell is the 2,000m high Schmittenhöhe, which is easily accessible by cable car. In the winter, Schmittenhöhe is known for its wide and well-groomed slopes with 100% snow certainty and its accessibility with the most modern facilities--and it is close to Mittersill.


Kitzsteinhorn Kaprun

Do you want to know what it feels like to ski a glacier--action, adventure, and variety included? At the glacier ski area Kitzsteinhorn your ski fun is guaranteed from the end of October! Three state-of-the-art cable cars can take you to over 3,000m above sea level and you will continue with the shuttle to the glacier plateau. What awaits you is an adventure area unique in Austria: the Ice Arena. You can race across the white glacier slope on slide sheets and toboggans, which can be hired free of charge on site, and take the magic carpet for a comfortable return to the start. Other guests swim in the crystal-clear Lake Zell in the valley while you enjoy the Ice Arena with snowball fights, building snowmen, or relaxing on loungers during a well-deserved break. It is an unforgettable experience for the whole family and the ideal opportunity to cool off in the summer. You should not miss the breathtaking views of the valley, the lake Zeller See, and the mountain range Kalkalpen during your skiing holiday in Mittersill.

The highlight of the ski area is certainly the longest valley slope in Austria. You can ski for 1,930m in one go--all the way back into the valley, Zillertal. What an incredible experience! Gerlos in Tyrol is located in the heart of the Zillertal Arena and its snow parks are particularly attractive for snowboarders and freestylers.
