ZELL AM SEE – CHRISTMAS
Zell am See was the second and definitely the prettiest lake-side ski resort we ever sold. With its close proximity to the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier in Kaprun, Zell offers snow-sure skiing. This historic medieval town, with its traffic free area offers a great night life. The 120km of ski slopes are ideally suited to most South African skiers with varied slopes that give easy access to mountain hut / restaurants and a good modern lift system. As a beginner your ski lessons will be held at the middle station so you get to experience the mountain atmosphere from day one.
A must for any Zell trip is an afternoon at Schnap- Hans Bar at the top of Schmittenhohe (2000m) where you can see your neighbours in Saalbach, or gaze across to wonderous Kitzsteinhorn glacier: (word on the street is that there might be a connection for Zell and Saalbach may be on the cards – let’s hold thumbs for this move.) When the sun goes down and the slopes empty the bars, restaurants and clubs come to life keeping with a ski Austrian atmosphere mixed with the international guest flavours, no trip to Zell is complete without a visit to Gin House and Crazy Daisy.
