Is there a deposit rental for my skis at the ski lift?

You can rent a locker directly at the ski lifts for about 8 EUR per depot online at Bründl Sports CityXpress. In vacation weeks it pays to reserve them in advance, as there is a high rush on the Locker.

Where can I buy ski clothes?

There are a few stores in Zell am See where you can buy ski clothing. We recommend Intersport Scholz or Bründl Sports.

Is there a ski room in the hotel where I can store my skis?

Our hotel, as well as the apartment building, has a ski room where you are welcome to deposit your skis, as well as warm your boots on a ski boot dryer.

Where can I buy ski tickets and what does a ski pass cost? Are there any packages that already include a ski pass?

You can buy the ski tickets directly in the hotel at the reception. If you order them in advance, you will get them right at check-in. Winter ski packages have the ski passes already included. Book them here.

Which areas are included in the Ski Alpin Card?

Already in 2019/20 ski winter, the Ski ALPIN CARD will be launched as the new key to the three premium ski regions Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, Schmitten in Zell am See and Kitzsteinhorn Kaprun. With 408 kilometres of slopes, 119 lifts and a maximum of attractions - including glaciers - the new ticket promises an almost endless mountain experience and is thus the ticket highlight in the Alpine region. With the ticket association, three premium regions create even more convenience and clarity in the offer, because in the future uniform prices will apply in all three areas for ski day tickets, ski multi-day tickets and season and annual tickets.

We recommend the Ski School Zell am See, please make your enquiry directly here. There are group courses as well as private courses for beginners, advanced skiers and all age groups. Should you book the ski school, the nearest ski school to the hotel is the CityXPress station.

Since we are right in the centre of Zell am See, there are also several après ski bars in the nearby area. Our own restaurant Greens also has a small après ski bar on the doorstep.

Can I arrive earlier on the day of arrival or stay longer on the day of departure to go skiing?

You are welcome to arrive earlier on the day of arrival. Comfortably park your car already at the parking lot, possibly have breakfast at the hotel and then hit the slopes! On the day of departure, we offer the same with the possibility of using a shower after skiing.
