Breath-taking views!
Mar 2020
After visiting Ischgl, Zell am See was more our style. The views of the lake and surrounding mountains were incredible. The resort is smaller than Ischgl and less glitzy. The smaller, family atmosphere provided a relaxed skiing experience with gentler slopes and smaller line-ups. A traditional mid-mountain hut (Glockerhaus) served a delicious lunch topped off with odd taxidermy (groundhogs and small deer) on the walls! The ski resort is set in old town with historic buildings. The apres-ski is toned down compared to Ischgl. I highly recommend this ski resort-especially for families and people seeking a more laid-back skiing experience in a stunningly beautiful setting.

Stunning views
Mar 2020
We visited as winter hikers, not skiers but the atmosphere is fabulous with stunning views (weather permitting!) and a choice of reasonably priced places to eat and drink. I would add that for non skiers using gondolas and cable cars is expensive in Austria as opposed to places like France and this area is no exception and what winter hiking tickets that are available have significant restrictions placed on them with no Alpin 3 in 1 area card available.

Beautiful mountain scenery
Jan 2020 • Family
We skied for 3 days. Almost no lines. They groomed it on Sunday night. Restaurants at all the lifts. Ski mobiles get to injured people right away. Visitors are very friendly. Some of the Blue runs were harder than the Red runs. We saw a glacier peeking out on a run the first day.

Great skiing

Wonderful area to ski. We had great snow and enjoyed all of the different areas we skied. Natural and man made snow. Large enough area we didn’t have to wait for lines.

Incredably nice top-bar
Jan 2020
Skiing in Zell am See is different from Kaprun. It is most often a bit easier slopes but there are also a few black ones for those who likes that.
There is a great top-bar that is very nice to visit and you access that by taking the big cable-car to the top from the centre station. Good music and atmosphere.
The slopes are best at the "back-side" from Zell am See.
It is possible to ski to Saalbach as well.

Great skiing, nice views
Jan 2020
We spent a week here skiing over new year's. Despite the higher temperature (above 0 on slopes) the snow was good due to the snow making all night. Lower down the mountain it definitely got more icy later in the day. The lifts are great, usually waiting time max 15 minutes (and that is an exception). There are several restaurants on the slopes, most of them seem to cater to deaf people. The music is horrible loud (and bad !) and for some they have rules: for instance you can only sit on the higher up terrace if you order at lease a main course per person. They only tell you this after you are seated (schnappshans), another restaurant (panorama) ran out of food and again we were not told until we finally found a spot after waiting for 30 minutes. They then also told us drinks would take 30-40 minutes and the kitchen had no food left, Interesting since the same restaurant but with self service had plenty ! So I would say, skip these spots. My recommendations: For atmosphere: Ebenbergalm. Nice rustic place with great food at great prices. Couple running this place is very friendly. Try the homemade schnapps ! It is not easy to find (along the 5 down slope) but worth some hiking. If you are walking in summer or winter, take the winterwanderweg 27)For good quality/price and fast service: Eder hutte. Unlike some of the other places these guys have it under control; fast service, good food, friendly people. It is higher up, but worth it.
