Long winter seasons on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier & top ski areas near Kaprun

The winter season on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier starts in early autumn and lasts through to the summer. The glacier ski area near Kaprun attracts Alpine skiers, snowboarders, ski tourers, and sporty freeriders with its many runs, fantastic panoramic views, and its impressive infrastructure.

There are 2 more ski areas in the close vicinity of our hotel in Kaprun: the Maiskogel family ski mountain, and the Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See, well known far beyond Austria.

3K K-onnection – Launches winter 2019/2020!

In December 2018, the first leg of the 3K K-onnection service, the MK Maiskogelbahn lift, was opened to the public, running directly from Kaprun town centre to the Maiskogel summit. The valley station of the MK Maiskogelbahn is just a short walk from our hotel, The Alpenhaus Kaprun, and offers a smooth ascent to the region’s easy, wide slopes – the perfect alpine playground for families and beginners.

The final leg of the 3K Kaprun-Kitzsteinhorn K-onnection is scheduled for completion in November 2019.

You will then be able to hop on a cable car in the centre of Kaprun and reach the Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area in no time. No car is required as the valley station is just a short walk from The Alpenhaus Kaprun Hotel. The new, tri-cable gondola lift, the first of its kind in the province of Salzburg, will whisk you up via the Maiskogel to the mountain station on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier. A breathtaking journey that promises pure skiing pleasure.

Ski in 3 ski areas with only 1 card - The new Ski Alpin Card

From winter 2019/2020, the new Ski Alpin Card will cover all the lifts for three popular ski areas: the Skicircus Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn, Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See and Kitzsteinhorn in Kaprun.

The new Ski Alpin Card gives you access to 121 lifts and 408 km of pistes: all 3 ski areas with just 1 ski pass.

Wide range of alternatives for nonskiers

For nonskiers on winter holidays in Kaprun, there is a wide range of other alternatives aside from fun on the pistes. Your programme might include cross-country skiing, tobogganing, iceskating, or winter hiking.
