A popular resort with lots on offer for all levels
Kaprun is one of the most popular resorts for Crystal customers. Set at the foot of the breathtaking Kitzsteinhorn Glacier, it offers an excellent range of pistes, including high altitude pistes with guaranteed snow, with the lift pass covering the Kaprun areas and Zell am See too (connected by regular ski bus). Off the slopes, the 'Optimum' Sports Centre and 'Tauern Spa' complex both have fantastic facilities. Combined with a wide variety of bars and restaurants, Kaprun has lots to offer, both on and off the piste.
Gentle nursery slopes are found beside the village centre, on the Lechnerberg. With excellent instruction from the Kaprun ski school, as confidence is gained, beginners can progress on to the numerous easy runs of the Maiskogel and the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier.
The range of skiing in and around Kaprun is truly incredible. Over 130kms of pistes and 58 lifts are available in the fantastic Kaprun/Zell am See Europa Sportregion (free ski bus).
Accomplished skiers will relish the contrast of wide-open pistes and superb powder of the glacier bowl. There are seven exciting black runs throughout the region, some with vicious moguls. There are especially challenging and exhilarating pistes on Zell am See's Schmittenhöhe Mountain and the Maiskogel has some great off piste on powder days.
