The Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area offers first-class skiing as early as October, while autumn still dominates the rest of the mountains. The cozy and flat runs of the Lechnerberg directly in the center of Kaprun are popular meeting places for families and beginners. At the family mountain Maiskogel in Kaprun young and old enjoy a wide range of sporty slopes and cozy cabins.
Nordic Sports, classic or skating, in cross-country skiing in the Kaprun region. The sun is shining. It is bitterly cold and the snow crystals glitter in the winter sun. The silence of winter’s day is beautiful. You’ll hear next to nothing but your own breath as you spin your laps on the cross-country skating trail. Other cross-country skiers are on the way too, but you do not get in the way. Space enough to enjoy the beauty of winter.
The Kitzsteinhorn offers all ski tourers an early start to their sporty ski mountaineering season in autumn already. The two signposted ski touring routes “Eisbrecher” (Icebreaker) and “Schneekönigin” (Snow Queen) with start at the Langwiedboden are opened as soon as the first snow falls. A unique training ground for all endurance athletes who want to accomplish their altitude metres on secured pistes from autumn until late in spring.
This is pure slowing-down. The sun is shining, everything glistens, you have time and you take your time. No pushing and shoving, no stress and no time pressure. “In harmony with nature” – this is how you feel when winter or snowshoe hiking between glacier, mountain and the lake in the Zell am See-Kaprun region. But attention:: Check before every tour about current weather and avalanche danger!
