Six of us made our first visit to Zell the first week in February. We have previously been in St Johann (tirol) for many seasons before that. We found it to be a lovely town, our hotel, Feinschmeck was very comfortable, very centrally located (5 mins walk to city express) the adjoining restaurant was very good but a bit on the pricy side. Most of the restaurants are italian or austrian and are good value. The skiing was excellant, there is a huge amount of piste for all levels. We found it disappointing that the apres ski started much later, we were used to coming off the mountain and into a packed pub! this is not the case here, however come 7.30/8.00 many places were warming up with bands in Crazy Daisys, mem bar and Flanagans and later Deaili/greens and a niteclub was for the young and young at heart - dancing on the chairs/stage optional!! Ski school & huge ski hire shop beside the city express. We got private lessons and the instructors were excellant. The only runs down to the village are black, the lifts are very good quality and plenty of nice heated chairlifts at the top. The views are spectacular and we didnt get time to go to Kaprun which is the glazier but i believe its lovely over there but a good bit colder and windy with changing conditions. We will definately be going back.
