With its lakeside location surrounded by towering mountains, varied skiing, glacier, and its 13th Century pedestrianized centre with plenty of shops and restaurants, it’s not hard to see why Zell am See in Austria is an iconic ski destination and popular with school groups. After a day on the slopes, you won’t struggle to find things to do in the evening, including swimming, ice-skating, watching an ice-hockey match, curling and sleigh rides.

The area offers 136km of skiing split over three mountains, so there is plenty to explore over the week. The Schmittenhohe ski area is accessed from Zell, with the Maiskogel and Kitzsteinhorn glacier areas accessed via Kaprun.

The diverse ski area has plenty of slopes for all levels of skier in your group, with beginners and intermediates particularly well catered for. With access to a glacier, you are guaranteed snow, even at the latest of Easters.

Why we recommend Zell am See

  • A favourite destination for British school groups
  • Iconic, lake-side location
  • Glacier resort ensures snows throughout the season
