Kaprun Austria from Lee, Snowboarder 09/04/2011
This was the best holiday I've had -

Great park, excellent off piste, cracking weather and I would say it was the best food I've ever had on any holiday (all my meals were at the mittereger) The hotel overall is excellent value, the apres isnt that good as its small town but i dont go for that anyway, if you love to ski in ski out on your holiday then this isnt for you, but as I say I really like this resort.

You can ski the glacier (10-15 by bus)

Zell am see (15 mins by bus)

Or walk to the local hill Maiskogel that has a small park and some nice tree runs that will entertain you for at least half a day or a whole day if there is powder.

When the snow is suffering at zell / salbaach / hinterglem get to the glacier early or there is big queues!
Skiing/Snowboarding: 5/5 Apres Ski: 3/5

Review 04/12/2009
Kaprun is an extremely beautiful village which has retained its charm. If you are looking to party until you drop then this may not be the place for you. However, if you want guaranteed snow it’s the place for you, with the Kitzsteinhorn glacier a free 10 minute bus ride away. I even skied it in August. The Slopes in the village are ideal for skiers of all abilities. What could be better than ending your day in the lederhosen bar with a hot glass of mulled wine? If you’ve never skied before, the Hotel Taurenhoff backs onto the baby slopes and the facilities there are top notch. To sum up stop looking for other ski resorts and go here!

Review 09/01/2009
Good snow coverage even in December. Not a typical Austrian village, it is quite agricultural and industrial so expect some animal smells. Access to slopes via the ski bus is good although can take a bit of patience to work out initially. Ski runs are great for families and are mostly wide and open. If you don't like your bars smokey then you won’t like the bars here!

Review 07/01/2009
Kaprun is a charming Austrian village with lively aprés-ski. Zell am See is definitely worth a night out while staying in Kaprun as it is just down the road and has some legendary aprés-ski bars.

Check the times for the free ski bus and where it stops, as it has a direct route to the slopes unlike the Dorftbus (citybus) which may leave you with a walk.

Plan ahead for decent/return back to the village so as to avoid the congestion on the return journey, go early enough and ski back down from the top of the village Maiskogel slope. Food on the mountain is great in all restaurants, although there can be price discrepancies between them. Make sure you get your daily intake of water, salt and good food as, chips and beer will leave you dehydrated, tired and not able to concentrate especially at 3200 meters. Local nightlife is great especially in, around and 'underground' the village centre.
