Zell am see is a beautiful spot with gentle skiing - perfect for older skiers like us and very good for families with young children! There is just enough for the kids to learn in safe conditions! You can even ski on the glacier in nearby Kaprun. although we never have. Apres-ski was quieter than we expected but this suits us just fine.

Zell am See is the party town in the Alps. The apres-ski and nightlife is very lively, lot's of young people. Zell am See is a charming village next to a large lake. The lake is almost allways frozen during the winter. The skiing in Zell am See is great. It suits the intermediate skier. Slopes are quite long. Not every part of the skiarea is very sunny, you have to move according the time of the day. Please dont forget to the local food in one of the many small mountain restaurants.

The slopes are great, the views are breath taking, and it was all lots of fun in Zell am See. The skiresort is best suited to intermediates. Some of the blue slopes are challenging. From the Schmittenhohe there are a couple of nice black routes. In general the snow conditions where alright, but the main slopes back to town were a bit icy (and crowded). Zell am See has lots to offer: there are many nice shops, the food and the shopping are worth the trip, and the apres ski is one of the best in Austria.

Zell am See was beautiful! Zell is a small ski area but well worth a visit. The lake was frozen and could be walked and skated on. if you're more than a beginner you'll want to go to Kaprun (lovely powdery runs, awful bus trip) or Saalbach (bus trip costs 7euro and you need to get the super ski pass to cover the whole area but well recommended). We didn't get the super ski pass and I'd definitely recommend that for the extra 25 euro as you then have the chance of skiing in Saalbach for 2 or 3 days. It's only a half hour bus trip (ie as far as Kaprun), less crowded bus and the ski area is massive with excellent runs. The Apres-ski is not as good as Saalbach or Kitzbuhel, but Diele bar and Cra

Ski area is good, if somewhat limited and lift system works very well, no queues! A real pain to get to Kaprun even if you are staying in kaprun and not really worth the effort except for the view of the glacier, spectacular! Night life in Zell am See is pretty exciting as well as the apres ski. Also the off-slope amenities are great: nice shops, great restaurants, and beautiful hiking routes along the lake. Zell has got it all!

Good night life No negative aspects!
