“A great ski area”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Hadnt really heard of this place before but its a great ski area. Lots of modern lifts and linked to the slopes of Flachauwinkl and Kleinarl. The home runs are quite steep in some places and nervous novices may find them a bit intimidating but for most this area presnts plenty of good skiing. The village is however no more than a collection of hotels and a couple of sports shops. If that doesnt bother you then give Zauchensee a try.Its also close to big name resorts such as Schladming - we drove there in 30 minutes and had a good day out.

“Great place to ski for a mixture of abilities”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

First time we have been back to Austria skiing in over 20 years but it has made us fall in love with the skiing all over again. Zauchensee is conveniently placed so you have a wide range of slopes to ski. Would highly recommend.
