The stunning waterfront town has skiing on the doorstep, 3000m+ skiing on the nearby glacier, the best spa south of Salzburg and potent après ski. All in all, Zell am See is a fantastic corporate ski event destination.


From its superb location between Lake Zeller and the local peaks, Zell am See offers 3 different ski areas in the combined Zell am See – Kaprun ski region, including the cloud-piercing 3000m+ Kitzsteinhorn Glacier. With a connection into the Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn ski region, the ski area is one of the biggest in the Alps.

Crucially for corporate ski trips, all abilities are catered for with beginner skiing at the Maiskogel, endless miles of intermediate terrain in the Saalbach-Hinterglemm sector and epic powder and freeride terrain in the Fieberbrunn area. A snow guarantee is assured at the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier.

Zell am See really works for corporate ski events off the snow, and non-skiers have plenty of activities to distract them skating, air sports, spa sessions, and winter walks, whilst group fine dining is possible in a celebrated local castle. With a pedestrianised centre, waterfront promenades, and a range of great bars, central Zell am See is a fantastic location.

For meeting events, Zell am See is a quality resort with excellent meeting facilities in the congress centre as well as hotels. The historic Porsche family connections with Zell am See have left a legacy on many public spaces – Zell am See is a wealthy town in a truly magical setting, something that captivates those on corporate ski events.

Above Zell am See itself is the Schmittenhohe ski area that is lift linked from Zell am See and has ski pistes running back into the ski resort.

The Schmittenhohe ski area at Zell am See is probably the most diverse ski area in the Zell am See - Kaprun region with steep blacks, a good number of reds and some gentle blue ski pistes from the Schmittenhohe. The views from the Schmittenhohe / Zell am See ski area are sensational with glaciers all over the horizon and Lake Zeller down in the valley.

The 3rd ski area in the region is the Maiskogel that is located above Kaprun and is an ideal beginner ski area. The tree lined ski pistes are nearly all gentle on the Maiskogel. Linked from the Schmittenhöhe, the Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn ski region now adds huge and diverse terrain to the Zell am See skiing.
