Best tips for Kitzsteinhorn - Kaprun
A spacious but pleasant village a few minutes bus ride down the road from Zell am See, and with slopes on the snow-sure Kitzsteinhorn glacier. It makes a particularly good early- or late-season break. Buses to and from both resorts are often crowded at peak times; staying centrally may be best. Most slopes are on the glacier, but nearby Maiskogel also has a small intermediate area. The glacier slopes offer little challenge but there is off-piste with a guide, three ski routes and freeride workshops. The town has plenty of hotels, restaurants, a few lively bars and new Tauern Spa centre.
- Convenient slope-side lodging
- Some quite challenging slopes
- Excellent children’s nursery slopes
