I really enjoyed skiing at Kitzsteinhorn. The bus ride from Zell Am See was kind of a hassle, but overall well worth the trip. I really enjoyed the variety of slopes and the number of chair lifts, gondolas, and t-bars available. The bars and restaurants on the mountain had plenty of good food and drinks to choose from.

When the snow melted on the schmittenhoe, my partner and I went to the kitzsteinhorn to try the skiing there, perfect conditions and the powder was so fresh, even in one of the warmest winters in decades.

Good skiing here, the only issue was getting there, the ski bus took 30 mins and these are very crowded, its worth the journey though.

Beautiful views but very busy in the afternoon, and gondalas became a bit of a fight to get back down.

Looks like a very nice and big ski-area but we couldn't enjoy it a lot. Too much people, long waiting lines at the elevators. Not enough space on the terraces, so we had to sit inside on a very sunny day. Could only do 3 slopes in a day because of the crowd. Bit expensive that way. Also very expensive... More

We decided to buy an All Star Card this year due to the poor snow conditions generally in North Tirol. We were staying in Saalbach and wanted the option to explore some of the other resorts if our snow wasn't any good. After 5 days of 10+ degrees we decided to make an early start and go to Kaprun. I... More

Long way up. The snow is crunchy and the air is cool so prepare for the conditions. But worth the travel and the climb as the snow is lush.

Outstanding views from the viewing platforms up top. The trek to the top can be an adventure in itself. I was here to ski so I didn't hang around too long but the centre at the top had lots to offer from the restaurant, cinema, gift shop and the huge viewing platform. To get to the piste you've got to... More
