Zillertal Arena ski region

The largest snow and fun arena of the Zillertal valley with Austria’s longest downhill valley run offers ski fun on 143 km of ski slopes.

The Zillertal Arena is one of the largest and most modern skiing areas of Austria and includes the localities of Zell and Gerlos on Tyrolean territory as well as Königsleiten, Wald and Krimml in Salzburg. In this skiing area you are really spoilt for choice, here you find e.g. the Zell am Ziller ski run, Austria’s longest downhill valley run, boasting 1,930 metres of vertical drop. Snowboarders love the Arena Hot-Zone Snow Park with halfpipe in Gerlos, the Kreuzwiese Action Park in Zell and the Hochkrimml fun park. Speedy racers, however, will enjoy the permanent race tracks such as the Speed Check Run in Hochkrimml and in Königsleiten as well as the Kids Speed Check Run in Gerlos, where they can challenge the record.

In the last years two new lift facilities were added, the Dorfbahn Gerlos and the Larmach Chairlift. The Zillertal Arena is also a place for kids! A special children’s programme, a pick up service, day childcare and snow sailing as well as the children-friendly slopes make kids’ holidays varied. Moreover, at the Zell am Ziller valley station, there is the Arena Coaster, an Alpine rollercoaster. And if you would like to enjoy the slopes by yourself, there’s also a guests’ kindergarten.

A free shuttle service connects the localities of Wald, Neukirchen, Krimml and Königsleiten - the “Zillertal Superskipass” is valid in the Zillertal Arena ski region. By the way: did you know that in this area the ski runs are cut and biologically fertilized? This has a positive impact on biodiversity and the overall appearance of the landscape!
