There are more than 200km of prepared cross country ski trails in the Europa Sports Region, around Lake Zell and into the nearby valleys. These trails are directly connected to the Saalachtal and Pinzgau cross-country ski areas.
Cross Country Skiing Zell Am See.
With 40 km, Zell am See has the largest network of cross country trails in the Europa Sports Region and possibly the most scenic.
Starting from the indoor tennis courts via Königshof to Thumersbach, trails lead from town to town across the region. One of the most notable is the track that takes you past Erlberg via Schüttdorf to Högmoos. It passes by the towns of Bruck and St. Georgen.
The Fischhornloipe is one of the prettiest ski trails. The West Loop is a 5km beginners trail. The 9km Zell Loop along the southern shore of lake is great for intermediates as is the longer, 25km, North Shore Loop.
The 5km Westloipe cross-country ski trail is very well suited for beginners. It leads from Kaprun to Piesendorf.
