Kaprun: Piste Map and Lift Passes

The Kaprun/Zell Europa Sport Region is run seamlessly by three operators whose websites can be found at (Glacier), (Maiskogel) and (Schmittenhoehe). Your time is well spent researching these and their links.

Lift Passes

Ski passes are valid in the Europa-Sport Region, Zell am See/Kaprun, with 57 cableways and lifts. There are 130km of slopes. Ski pass prices are obviously subject to change but the current prices for the 2005/2006 winter season can be found here.

The season start/finish dates vary depending on the area:

Our recommendation for confident skiers

If you like exploring and don't want to limit yourself to the main ski areas, you may want to spend a little extra and buy a Salzburg Super Ski Card - a regional ski pass which allows a ski safari in the widest sense.

The beauty of Kaprun as a base is that many of these smaller traditional villages with great but limited skiing are accessible within half an hour to an hour's drive (a hire car comes into its own here). The effort to visit the smaller resorts off the beaten package holiday track is well rewarded with cosy mountain restaurants and pistes very much more to yourself.

Saalbach-Hinterglemm is worthy of a specific mention being probably the best of the neighbouring areas and approximately 25 minutes easy drive from Kaprun. This is certainly a ski destination worthy of a day trip and is also covered by the Salzburg Super Ski Card and some of the flexible tickets.

Bad Gastein, Schladming and Kitzbuehel are also within reach.
