Snowboarding in Zell am See (Austria)

posted in: Bunch, Medium, Sports, Zell am See 2018 | 0

24 February 2018 till 3 March 2018 (8 days, 1 week). We rocked the gondola.

We preferred Kitzsteinhorn and went to Schmittenhöhe/ Zell am See only twice. Zell am See is crowded with beginners. It has 2 very nice black slopes, which we did not appreciate them snowboarding. Kitzsteinhorn has way better off-road possibilities. Due to the very low temperatures, the off-slope snow was unpleasant to ride.

Learned: Start at home at 3 am to be at Irschenberg early enough, before traffic jam starts. Get an appartment rather than a guesthouse to be able to cook in the evenings. Renting boots and helmet for 1 week is ridiculously expensive. Snowboarded till 2:30 and drove back without any traffic jam, arriving home before 22:30.
