  • Kitzsteinhorn Top of the Mountain

  • Snow and nature experience at 3,000 meters



A winter season XXL with absolute snow guarantee from October to May provides in the glacier skiing area of the Kitzsteinhorn for finest winter sports on and off the wide slopes.
Grandiose views of 3,000 meters and glittering natural snow make the only glacier ski area in the province of Salzburg a guarantee for varied winter sports opportunities during a skiing holiday in Zell am See - Kaprun.


The new, spectacular K-ONNECTION connects the centre of Kaprun with the popular family ski area Maiskogel and the legendary Kitzsteinhorn, creating a fascinating unity. For guests and winter sports enthusiasts it brings shorter distances, ski-in ski-out in Kaprun to and from the glacier and the highest comfort in the newly built Kaprun Center including valley station, ticket offices, ski depot and sports shop. From the village of Kaprun to the TOP OF SALZBURG at 3,029 meters, up to six cable cars can now comfortably negotiate 2,261 meters of altitude difference while crossing four climate and vegetation zones. For winter sports enthusiasts, excursionists and nature lovers, this is a dreamlike alternative to the glacier jets at the end of the valley in Kaprun all year round. The heart of the 
K-ONNECTION forms the 4.3-kilometer-long 3K K-onnection: Salzburg's first three-cable orbit railway connects the top station of the MK Maiskogelbahn (1,570 m) with Langwied (1,975 m) on the Kitzsteinhorn. 32 designer cabins, including two special Explorer cabins, guarantee impressive 360-degree panoramic and panoramic views. 


Anyone who has ever looked back breathlessly at the end of a downhill run in dusty powder snow to see his line in the untouched powder slope will have fallen for the fascination of freeriding by then at the latest.

Thanks to the snow-assured high altitude of the Kitzsteinhorn, freeriders are already drawn to the glacier in early winter. The five routes, which are close to the lifts and well signposted, offer a variety of terrain. From the "Ice Age" to the "Jump Run", riders of all skill levels will find the right terrain for their perfect line.


  • In the National Park Gallery you get wonderful insights into the beauty of the Hohe Tauern National Park.
  • In the Cinema 3000 you can experience the Kitzsteinhorn in almost limitless panoramic images on an eight-metre wide screen.
  • Breathtaking views without a beamer are offered by the panorama platform Top of Salzburg, which provides a view of Kaprun, the Zeller See and the Kalkalpen.
  • The Ice Arena offers daily snow fun: Make yourself comfortable on a lounger on the snow beach and conquer the slides in the summer snow with a bobsled.


An extra long freestyle season from October to May, absolute snow guarantee on the glacier, an experienced shaper team and legendary scene events - get the kick in the world-class Kitzsteinhorn snowparks!

Already in autumn the first kickers, rails and boxes will be shredded in the Glacier Park on the glacier plateau. Until the beginning of May, Easy Park and Central Park offer a variety of setups for beginners, experts and pros. Year after year, the mighty Superpipe with walls over six metres high attracts international top athletes to the Kitzsteinhorn in Kaprun.
