Zell am See - Kaprun, Austria
The high concentration of beginner and intermediate slopes make this the perfect place to revisit the basis and learn new techniques!
The Zell am See - Kaprun area is a scenic ski resort boasting over 61km of slopes, 10.5km of ski routes, and 21 lifts. The high concentration of beginner and intermediate slopes make this the perfect place to revisit the basis and learn new techniques - which you can then put to test on some steep black runs and the area's more challenging off-pistes. The presence of the Kitzsteinhorn glacier means that conditions are favourable for much of the season; however, despite this the resort tends to stay relatively quiet, making it perfect for anyone looking to get away a bit from the crowds.
Snowbusters will organise accommodation in self-catered apartments for you - but if you prefer to book your own, that's ok too. Just let you hosts know in advance :)
