Zell am See

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
We are planning on 10 days skiing at Zell am See in January, and am hoping that y'all might have some information about the resort.
We are staying at the Hotel Berner, which I understand is ski-in right next to the Zellerbahn gondola.
We have a diverse group of skiers, from PSIA Level 3 to relative beginners.
Anyone have info. about where the best skiing is, tricks to avoid lines, and good apres-ski venues.
Thanks much

OK, just down the Schmittenstrabe from the gondola base there is a small bar on the left - it is always full, and rocks. (also very good value)
Your best place to start apres is the bar at the top of the mountain.
There's plenty of terrain for everyone, and you can always go to the glacier at Kaprun, or round to Saalbach/Hinterglemm if you want to see a bit more.

Zell is a nice ski mtn and town and the higher altitude (snowsure) skiing on Kitzsteinhorn Glacier/Kaprun

is very close by. Hope you get to try the on-mtn lunch spot I enjoyed - The crystal clear view from the Pinzgauer Hutte was worth the trip to Europe alone. Zell and the glacier could keep you busy for a week, but with 10 ten days there are several other significant ski areas, as mentioned by Fox, that you could visit within an hour by car. Besides the glacier slopes, you can also see the trails of Saalbach from the Zell terrain. Check out this and companion piece for an impression of the skiing in the state of Salzburg:

For Beginners and intermediates at best as you described it Zell is o.k.

Saalbach/Hinterglemm around the corner offers similar terrain but way more. This is the very place to hit for Apres ski but be ready for hefty prices there too.
