Incredible Views

Try paragliding to enjoy some breath-taking views of the peaks and the valleys between Kitzsteinhorn and Schmittenhöhe mountains. Or, if you prefer to feel the ground beneath your feet at all times, head to Lake Zell (Zeller See) for a pootle on ice skates on a natural frozen-over lake.

Aprè Ski

If after a day of sports you are still in for more, at least 20 chalets, huts and Alpine inns, situated right on the slopes, will be competing to offer you your perfect après-ski cocktail. Off the slopes – and right into a party in an original Alpine cabin.
