Learn to ski in Zell am See

Zell am See is situated in the Kitzbühel Alps, directly at the foot of the Schmittenhöhe mountain. The resort is less than 1.5 hours drive away from Salzburg and only 2 hours away from Munich and Innsbruck. The peak of the Schmittenhöhe lies at 1,965m and offers an excellent panoramic view of the Kitzsteinhorn mountain in the adjacent Salzburg Slate Alps.

The Schmittenhöhe ski area has approximately 138km of skiable area, including the Kitzsteinhorn and Kaprun Maiskogel pistes. The resort is very popular with families and ski schools in Zell am See utilise the wide range of slopes at all levels, around 73km being beginner slopes. A single ski pass - the Ski Alpin Card - covers not only the Zell am See-Kaprun area but also the neighbouring Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn and Hinterreit regions, the three regions together offering a total of 408km of slopes.

Ski lessons for beginners in Zell am See

Beginner lessons start from age 4yrs and ski schools in Zell am See start their first-time skiers on very gentle slopes, teaching them the basics of gliding and the snowplough before moving onto simple turns.

There are several beginners areas within the resort: The lower-lying Schüttdorf and Schmittental areas have easy slopes and beginners’ lifts. Higher up the resort, further gentle slopes can be found at the areitXpress mountain station and at the Kapellenbahn, Kettingbahn and Hahnkopf lifts.

Adult beginners can also make the most of their Ski Alpin Card and explore some of the 140km of blue runs within the three resorts.

Kid’s ski lessons in Zell am See

Ski schools in Zell am See have three friendly mascots who accompany their little learners on their first days on the slope; Robby Roo, Crazy Tiger and Schmidolin the dragon. Kids’ ski lessons last for 4hrs per day, lesson groups being divided according to age and ability. Ski schools in Zell am See start by teaching their young beginners the basic techniques at the lower-lying nursery areas in Schüttdorf and Schmittental. Beginners with a little more experience quickly advance to any of the 6 blue runs within the resort, such as the route 7 run, which is a well-known confidence builder.

Young intermediate skiers are taken to red runs within the resort, the majority being situated in the Sonnkogel area. 56% of the runs within the Zell am See-Kaprun area are red, so there is plenty of space to practice. Route 12 is a very long but gentle red run and a favourite of the ski schools in Zell am See. It’s ideal for skiers who are advanced beginners to intermediate level.
