The lively town of Zell am See lies at the centre of the Europa Sport Region, one of Austria’s best-known ski areas. 130 km of groomed pistes, 60 lifts and skiing up to a height of 3,030 metres awaits your school ski group. Our lift pass covers skiing from Zell am See and Schüttdorf on the Schmittenhöhe mountain. At 2,000 metres high, it is perfect for intermediate skiing from the summit and some excellent ridge runs.
If required you can extend your lift pass to the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier, a ten-minute drive away. This is great for Easter and 100% snow sure! Why not try conquering the new “Glacier Round Trip” – 41 kilometres from the peak of the Kitzsteinhorn to Langwiedboden – on your last day? True enthusiasts can freestyle to their heart’s content in three snow parks, a super pipe, mogul slopes and five freeride ski trails.
Zell am See is home to Club Europe’s very own ice hockey match between two premier league teams, now open to all school ski groups, on the middle Wednesday of the main ski weeks. Thrill at the skills of the Zeller Eisbären and soak up the atmosphere at this exciting event. Ice-skating, ice-curling, swimming and bowling are also available in the sports centre, or you can choose to enjoy some late-night shopping in Zell am See’s pretty town centre.
