Zauchensee reviews

In our view Zauchensee, offers the best skiing in the region, A wide choice of slopes for all levels,including a slalom course with electronic timer (not so good when your 12 year old beats you) and of course the world cup downhill run. Fast plentifull lift systems and excellent modern facilities all in the traditional Austrian style. There is no shortage of investment in snow machines and piste bashers and the guys out there do a great job keping the piste in good condition. Most of the pistes meet in the same area so handy if your group skis at different levels as easy to meet up through the day. From Zauchensee you can ski over the mountain to Flachauwinckle which opens a whole new area.
