Winter(sport) paradise from autumn to early summer
Whether newbie or pro, young or old, leisurely or action-packed, as part of a group, as a couple or with the family. On the Kitzsteinhorn, in Austria’s first and Salzburg’s only glacier ski area, sports fans and nature lovers alike get to enjoy really special winter (sports) fun both on and off the piste. On the Maiskogel, families in particular and pleasure-oriented skiers can enjoy themselves on the gentle terrain and close to the town, while beginners can enjoy those first turns on the flat ski runs on the Lechnerberg in the centre of Kaprun.
Since 2019 the Kitzsteinhorn has been accessible direct from Kaprun. In total six cable cars form a chain, 12 kilometres in length – from the centre of the town, right up to 174 metres beneath the summit of the glacier. This is the longest cable car axis in the East Alps, which at 2261 metres altitude, also covers the biggest altitude difference in the same area.
