Picture postcard views, a pretty lakeside town and access to both the Schmittenhöhe ski area and Kitzsteinhorn glacier ensure this charming winter sports location has something for everyone. Perched on a small peninsula jutting out into a sparkling lake surrounded by breathtaking mountains, Zell forms a gateway to the Schmittenhöhe ski area above, where you'll find slopes perfect for beginners and families and a vast fun park for all.
The main ski lift (City Express Gondola) is a couple of minutes walk from our Mountain Lake Resort and the resort runs also finish here. The neighboring resort of Kaprun, included in your lift pass and a short bus ride away gives you access to the vast snowfields in the Kilzsteinhorn glacier, popular among freeriders and freestylers with more advanced skiing up to 3000m. Getting from mountain to mountain couldn't be easier with the shuttle free of charge to ski-pass holders.
A two- minute walk to the City Express ski gondola is just one of the attractions of the Mountain Lake Resort. These luxurious ski apartments are just 150 metres from the lively centre of this charming Austrian resort.
The Mountain Lake Resort consists of 34 apartments spread over three buildings. Floor-to-ceiling windows make the most of the sparkling mountain sunlight, but triple glazing and underfloor heating ensure you stay toasty and warm.
