Kaprun has lots to do, both on and off the slopes. At the foot of the Kitzsteinhorn glacier, Kaprun’s got an excellent range of pistes – from gentle beginner slopes on Maiskogel to the menacing Black Mamba up on the glacier. Also Zell am See is only a short ski bus ride away and easily reachable for even more slopes. The Optimum Sports Centre and Tauern Spa complex both have fantastic facilities, including large indoor and outdoor pools and spa facilities. Plus there’s a wide variety of bars and restaurants to keep your evenings busy too.
Beginners and intermediates will feel right at home in Kaprun with the Panorama Schaufelberg lift offering 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 good mix of more challenging runs and guaranteed snow.
Kitzsteinhorn Glacier rises to 3,029 metres and, as well as having a good mix of runs, has also been praised as a great freeride area thanks to its snow reliability and varied off-piste terrain. Throw in a snow park and the 63% gradient black run, named the Black Mamba, and you have a great all-rounder. If all the skiing is tiring you out you can pop along to the Ice Camp. It’s a series of inter-connected igloos made out of 60 tonnes of ice, complete with ice bar, ice lounge and sun deck.
