A popular village in the Zell am See ski area with guaranteed snow on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier.
- High-altitude glacier skiing.
- Great slopes for easy cruising.
- Excellent for snowboarders.
At the foot of the Kitzsteinhorn glacier, Kaprun has some lovely beginner and intermediate pistes on its lower slopes – as well as a few extreme runs up on the glacier, like the steep and deep Black Mamba. And Zell am See is a short ski bus away, so there’s lots more mileage within reach. Kaprun’s sprawling alpine village has an excellent public pools and spa centre and some lively restaurants and bars on and off the slopes. Don’t miss the Ice Camp, a series of interconnected igloos, complete with ice bar, ice lounge and sun deck.
Beginners and intermediates will feel right at home in Kaprun with the Panorama Schaufelberg lift, which gives you easy access from the resort to a selection of suitable blue and red runs. Intermediate and advanced skiers should head up the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier for a decent mix of more challenging runs – including the 63% gradient Black Mamba – and guaranteed snow. It rises to 3,029 metres and is noted as a great freeride area thanks to its snow reliability and varied off-piste terrain.
