Winter fun

Endless mountain fun on 408km of pistes awaits you thanks to the Ski ALPIN CARD in the Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See, Kitzsteinhorn Kaprun and Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn regions, with just one ski ticket.
Whether skiing in the sun in spring or skiing at Christmas - the Schmittenhöhe is worth a visit in every season. In addition to 77km of perfectly groomed pistes, you can also look forward to highlights such as the longest fun slope in the world, two children's areas, a ski movie route, a night slope and, of course, numerous huts. During your skiing holiday in Zell am See, the Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area in Kaprun is also within reach. Natural snow pistes, varied routes for freeriders, three snow parks and Austria's largest superpipe for freestylers await skiers and snowboarders on the Kitzsteinhorn. In winter, the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, as one of the largest and most varied ski areas in Austria with 270km of slopes, numerous snow parks and much more, leaves hardly anyone cold.
In good snow conditions, a ski path leads from the hotel directly to the CityXpress valley station, the direct access to the Schmittenhöhe ski area, and back again. A ski bus stop is only 60m away from the hotel. A ski rental is in the house.
Directly behind the Waldhof is the public toboggan run, which is open depending on the snow conditions and also invites you to fun descents in the evening. Access to the 55km of pistes is about 5km away.
