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 11-Mar-2014)
As you may expect at this time of year, sunny weather and spring conditions can be enjoyed across Austria. The higher up you go, and if you stick to north facing slopes, then the snow is in excellent condition. At the lower altitudes on south facing, sun exposed slopes you can expect firmly packed snow first thing in the morning that softens to provide spring riding conditions.
The higher altitude resorts of Pitztal (261/361cm) and Kaunertal (297/365cm) report the deepest snow bases of our featured Austrian resorts.
The Ski Club Leader in Obergurgl (74/156cm) this weekend reported that edge control was relatively easy at present with plenty of soft snow on the pistes. The Leader in Zell am See (10/103cm) reported that the snow on the upper slopes was in great condition, even in the afternoon, however the slopes on the way down were soft and heavy in the afternoon.
European Weather Outlook
The weather is forecast to remain mostly sunny across the European resorts this week, although there is some cloudier weather expected on Thursday 13th March. This could deliver fresh snow to Austria and Germany. The temperature is expected to rise for the start of next week with the freezing level expected to sit around 3,000m on Monday 17th March.
If you are after fresh snow then the Scandinavian resorts could be your best bet, as cloudy and snowy weather is forecast next weekend. Oppdal in Norway could receive almost 60cm of new snow by Tuesday 18th March.
