Please let me tell you a little about Zauchensee. Zauchensee is a beautiful village that is situated at 1300 metres in the heart of the Skiamade region that covers over 850 km of pistes, 270 lifts and 25 resorts in five regions, all available on one lift pass and just a snowball´s throw from Salzburg airport (1 hour transfer). It is a small village with a big heart and a very big passion for snow sports. It is host to the FIS world cup downhill and home to the 4 times downhill world champion Michael Walchhofer. There is a superb range of pistes to cater for all types of ability. We also have "The Garden" which a secret off piste heaven. A trip over one mountain takes you to the Absolut Park (Atomic Park) a playground for people who enjoy some of the best competitions and the best park riding. It is no surprise or coincidence that Altenmarkt - Zauchensee is home to Atomic Ski factory and training ground for the Austrian ski and snowboard teams. As previously mentioned all abilities of snow sport fans are catered for.
Zauchensee combines tradition with service providing a perfect experience for young and old, from groups to singles with its snow sure slopes that are rarely crowded. It offers discounted or free (dependant on the week) lift passes for children and during parts of the season ski equipment is also free for children. Adult equipment hire is also inexpensive.
Dining out in the friendly and traditional bars and restaurants is no more expensive than prices in the UK and in lots of cases a lot cheaper making the après ski even more enjoyable. Whilst après ski is a tradition, peacefulness is also a requirement. Guests can party in the night bars but are never heard in the village. Accommodation here is also inexpensive. You can easily expect to pay 30€ per person per night. Zauchensee can be one of the cheapest places to ski/board, stay, eat, sleep and drink in Europe with the world class slopes thrown in too.
This area, little known by the British, is the jewel in the Salzburgerland Sportwelt's crown and yet most people have never heard of it. I am an English ski instructor and I have taught in many countries but this area captured my heart and this is where I chose to make my home. I am not trying to turn the area in to a British ski area but I am asking the Brits to experience something they may have been missing out on for a long time. I am telling you about Zauchensee ....... but sshhhh.....don't tell everyone! For more information about our Apartment House, skiing and the area please look at our website or just Google "Ski + Zauchensee". Thanks for reading this. Nigel
