Powder snow included
In the countryside surrounding the Fürthermoar Gut in the Zell am See Kaprun region – kilometers upon kilometers of pistes, powder snow and après-ski
From carving turns to powder turns
The Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area is ready to open its doors. In fact, the “Kitz” is a real mecca for active racers, ski clubs and training camps. In high winter season, the Kitzsteinhorn transforms into a paradise for freeriders and variant skiers, with as many as five designated freeride routes.
High winter – that’s also the time when the Schmittenhöhe comes into its own. This, “the most beautiful lookout mountain” in the Pinzgau, draws rookie skiers and pros alike with its sunny slopes and fantastic pistes. Everything on one mountain, including glorious views of the Hohe Tauern range. And there’s nowhere better to enjoy them than sitting out on one of the terraces of our many alpine huts. After long days of skiing, you have earned the right, after all, to treat yourself to an après-ski drink. Make your way safely back down to the valley – and the free ski shuttle will be waiting to bring you right back to the Fürthermoar Gut.
In winter, when your heart begins to crave alpine skiing, the Zell am See Kaprun region has to be on your at the top of your list. For decades now, the mountains around Zell am See have been renowned far and wide for their outstanding skiing opportunities. And when the skiing is done, the refreshment opportunities await
Up and down the mountain under your own steam
If you don’t want to spend the whole day slicing down nothing but groomed pistes, and instead prefer to truly earn those great downhill experiences while out on a full-blown ski tour, then the Zell am See Kaprun region will be ideal for you. In the height of winter, when the normally grass-topped mountains around Kaprun and Zell am See are blanketed in snow, skiers are drawn by great slopes and superb powder snow. In the same places where, in summer, hikers explore the “Pinzgauer Spaziergang” path one step after another, in winter you are greeted by fantastic ski-touring opportunities of all difficulty levels. If you make your way to the top of the Schmitten by gondola, you will be on the mountain even earlier and have a decisive advantage over everyone else.
In springtime, when it’s time for the ski-touring classics of the Hohe Tauern, more experience and endurance is a must. Resonant names, such as the Rauriser and Stubacher Sonnblick, the Granatspitze, Hocharn and Grossvenediger stand one after the other amid the flawless panorama of as many as thirty 3,000ers in our region. Want to conquer one of these mountains on touring skis? If so, then the Fürthermoar Gut provides an ideal base camp for all of your endeavors. If you want to place your trust in expert guides, we would be glad to make arrangements on your behalf.
