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 24-Apr-2014)
Some excellent skiing conditions are available at the remaining open Austrian ski resorts. It is mostly the high altitude resorts that remain open and due to their height the snow is still well preserved.
Kuhtai (60/90cm) is Austria’s highest skiing town and although it does not have the deepest base depths in Austria the skiing is excellent this week. Make the most of it though as they close for the season on Sunday 27th April.
Good skiing can still be enjoyed in the Arlberg ski area, especially on the upper slopes. This is the last week of the season for this area too.
Cloudy weather is forecast over the weekend and into next week. This is expected to bring rain to many locations, but snow could land higher up. Kaunertal (305/343cm) and Pitztal (239/322cm) are forecast the most snow, with over 60cm predicted to land at mid-mountain level by the end of next week.
European Weather Outlook
Cloudy skies will dominate over the weekend and next week in Europe. For skiers this is good news though as fresh snow is forecast. The greatest snowfall is predicted to hit resorts in Switzerland and Italy, with well over half a metre expected at the likes of Verbier, Zermatt, Saas Fee, Cervinia and Gressoney-la-Trinite. While less snow is expected to hit Austria and France, there should still be enough to provide some excellent late season skiing conditions.
