During your skiing holiday in Zell am See, the Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area in Kaprun is also close enough to touch. Natural snow slopes, varied routes for freeriders, three snow parks and Austria's largest superpipe for freestylers await skiers and snowboarders on the Kitzsteinhorn.
In good snow conditions, a ski trail leads from the hotel to the valley station of the CityXpress, the direct entrance to the Schmittenhöhe ski area, and back again. A ski bus stop is only 60m away from the hotel. A ski rental is located in the house.
NEW from winter 19/20: The Schmittenhöhe is merged with the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang and the glacier ski area Kitzsteinhorn, making it the largest ski resort in Austria. A central ski map allows you to conveniently use all facilities in the region.
Directly behind the Waldhof is the public toboggan run, which has opened depending on the snow conditions and also invites to fun departures in the evening. The entrance to the 55 km of pistes comprehensive trail network is located about 5km away.
