Zell am See Resort Info
Zell am See skiing
Set by a lake, Zell am See and its bus-linked neighbour Kaprun make up the 'Europa Sport' region, with a total of 130km of runs, 80 of which are at Zell. The setting is one of Zell's biggest selling points, with lovely views of the lake from the medieval town and the slopes above. The ski area is actually quite small with short runs, mainly catering for intermediates keen on improving technique rather than getting miles under their belts. Advanced skiers have few true challenges, while beginners may find Zell's biggest failing, its questionable snow reliability, a bit of a bother. Neither boarders nor experts would approve of Zell's conservation regulations, which ban any off-piste skiing. The lifts can become crowded at peak times, as can the local Kitzsteinhorn glacier at Kaprun, although it does guarantee year-round skiing. There are also extensive cross-country trails.
Zell am See ski resort
Zell is actually more popular in the summer than the winter. The lakeside town has loads of activities for those not on skis or a board, with lively nightlife, decent restaurants and a full range of accommodation. It is good to check where you are staying in relation to the lifts, as there is a short free bus to access the slopes. For skiing, it is also worth exploring some of the other terrain in the area, like Saalbach, Bad Gastein and Schladming. Overall, Zell is a lovely spot for a winter holiday, with or without skiing.

Snow Overview - Austria (snow news updated 22-Feb-2017)
For much of Austria the weather was mainly cloudy on Monday 20th February. There has been a bit of a drop in the temperature since the spring sun of last week, and many resorts have benefited from fresh snow over the weekend, which has contributed to some lovely skiing.
In the Arlberg region the skiing was looking excellent at Lech/Zurs (85/120cm). 20cm of fresh fell on Friday 17th, and there are still some nice areas of off-piste powder to enjoy. Nearby at St Anton/St Christoph (60/155cm) conditions were equally good, and all 23 lifts where spinning across the resorts. Further snow is expected between 1600-2000m for the region this week.
Towards Salzburg, Kaprun (60/130cm) was boasting some lovely looking groomed pistes, whilst in the Ski Welt (60/70cm) a touch of fresh snow refreshed the mountain at Ellmau, Scheffau and Soll.
Current forecasts predict that rain may fall across most resorts on Tuesday 21st, with temperatures expected to sit at around +4C. However, fingers are crossed for higher resorts such as Hintertux (70/180cm) that the precipitation will fall as snow. Wednesday and Thursday are likely to bring a mixture of sun and cloud, with the next period of snow expected on Friday 24th.
European Weather Outlook
It is going to a mix of weather conditions in the Alps this week. This weekend should see some excellent snow conditions all over The Alps, but we will see some strange weather before then. Austria and Germany will see a brief period of very warm temperatures in the next few days. This sudden mixing of warm and cold air will bring wide spread rain. The freezing level will quickly rise to between 1500m and 1800m, snow can be expected above 1900m. Italy and France will see cloud cover related to the change but shouldn’t expect any precipitation. Switzerland will see lots of cloud and potentially some mixed precipitation but nothing too heavy. Beyond this cold air will return rapidly late on Thursday. It’s not exactly clear what weekend conditions will be like currently, however most resorts in the central and northern Alps will experience powder skiing conditions on Saturday. For a more accurate picture on weekend condition check back here on Thursday.
It is also worth mentioning that currently there is a large storm appearing in the long range forecast for the end of this month. It still a long way away but it is worth a little bit of excitement over.
In The Pyrenees the weather will be mostly sunny this week. No new snow is currently forecast with the exception of Sierra Nevada where light snow is expected every day this week.
Snowy conditions return to Scandinavia this week with light to moderate snow forecast in Norway Finland and Sweden.
