Winter in Zell am See
When the mountains are covered in deep snow and the lake is glistening in glorious sunlight, this means that winter has arrived in Zell am See. This is great news for our guests, as the entrance to the Schmittenhöhe ski region is only 4 minutes away on foot.
The lake also has a lot to offer in winter: skating, curling or cross-country skiing on the lakeside ski trails.
Snow 100% guaranteed
Our little town in the mountains becomes a centre for skiing and winter sports enthusiasts in the winter, as the nearby Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski region offers a 100% guarantee of snow. And in the many huts and après-ski locations, party lovers will find lots of like-minded people to join in the fun.
Away from the slopes: winter hikes – traditions – shopping
The mountain town in the Salzburg region also has a lot to offer those preferring to enjoy the cold season from its quieter side. You can enjoy the magic of this unique region on winter hikes and during traditional events, or sample regional products and shop to your heart’s content. Or simply get the view from above by taking a trip in a hot air balloon over Zell am See.
