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 16-Jan-2017)
Thursday 12th January was a day of mainly cloud across Austria with some sun and snow showers at times too. Fresh snow fell overnight at many resorts, filling in some of the off piste tracks and leaving some excellent skiing to be had.
In contrast to December, it is now proving somewhat difficult to pick out a standout resort. However, the Ski Juwel resorts of Alpbach (70/110cm), Niederau (70/110cm) and Wildschonau (70/110cm) are looking particularly good following around 10cm of fresh overnight, and there are currently a good variety of pistes open for all abilities to enjoy.
In The Arlberg region, there was fresh tracks to be had at St Anton (35/115cm) and St Christoph (35/115cm), where 18/23 lifts were running and the temperature remained cold at around -2C. Finally, At Silvretta Montafron (45/122cm) it was a perfect morning to head up high and enjoy a cloud inversion and 7cm of fresh snow.
Whilst snow continued to fall on Thursday, It is Friday 13th January that may well be the day to really look out for. Current forecasts are predicting heavy snowfall for many regions, with the Gastein resorts in particular expected to receive around 30cm. Furthermore, the present front is not expected to lessen its stranglehold for some time, with snow showers likely to continue well into next week.
European Weather Outlook
Winter has arrived, better late than never apparently. The past few days has seen excellent snow fall, particularly in Austria, now its France, Italy and Switzerland’s turn. Coming up is a change in the direction of the flow of cold air. This change will, over the next 72 hours finally bring sizeable snow falls to resorts around The Matterhorn and Mont Blanc Massif. Strong winds are prevailing in some areas of the European Alps today. These winds will likely stay moderate to strong during the storm, this will mean uneven distribution of snow throughout the entire south western Alps range. In the east Italian resorts in the Sella Ronda will also see just under half a metre of new snow arrive. For the worried masses traveling to the Alps, fret no more. Over the weekend and into next week at time the visibility will be poor but the skiing will be fantastic.
The good news doesn’t stop for resorts in Germany either. The forecast is for more heavy snowfalls over the next three days. This week’s snowfalls should bed down a snow base to last the rest of the season, even the off piste areas will start becoming an option.
In Austria, briefly speaking the tap will stay on for the next three days with moderate to heavy snowfalls expected to continue. Beyond 72 hours the storm will slow down but conditions will stay cloudy with light snow.
The Pyrenees are getting some excellent snow fall currently, this will continue into the weekend. A great time to be skiing in the area.
