Matthias from Zell am See-Kaprun shows us the region’s two ski resorts: the Kitzsteinhorn and the Schmittenhöhe. The Kitzsteinhorn is a glacier ski resort, and therefore has year-round natural snow. As a former professional free style skier, the snow park is very important to Matthias, and the Kitzsteinhorn offers one of the biggest in Europe. The Schmittenhöhe is completely different to the glacier. It’s an overall larger ski resort, offering beautiful long forest rides with unbelieble views over Lake Zell. The town centre of Zell am See-Kaprun looks like a picture postcard with its medieval church and old buildings. After Matthias quit his career as one of Austria’s first professional freestyle skiers he took over the family businesses: Hotel Active by Leitner’s, a 4-star hotel in Zell am See-Kaprun, and the historical Winklhof. In his eyes the highest reward a hotel manager can receive is a happy customer returning.
