Zell am See-Kaprun offers great Ski Touring
If you feel like using your touring skis to go up the mountain, the Maiskogel caters for people of all abilities. These slopes are reserved for ski touring once a week, on Wednesday evenings.
Up high on the Kitzsteinhorn, there are new ski touring trails which can be followed as early as autumn. The Snow Queen (“Schneekönigin”) and Icebreaker (“Eisbrecher”) run alongside the pistes.
The Snow Queen has a drop of 474 m, starting at the Langwiedboden and finishing at the Alpincenter. As for the Icebreaker, this has the same starting point but is much longer: its 899 m drop ends at the Maurer lift’s top station, 2,875 m above sea level. The thin air at these heights is often used by endurance athletes, as it has a lower oxygen content.
Away from the Langwiedboden’s ski touring slopes, enthusiasts will love the Thumersback Ronachkopf. This runs through eye-popping landscapes for 2.5 km, and its 500 m drop makes it a fairly simple route. There are particularly good views at Zell am See, the Hohe Tauern and the Schmitten.
The region boasts some excellent ski touring events, such as the Dynafit Kitzsteinhorn Extreme, the Kitzsteinhorn-Schneekönig and the Aufi-Owi.
