    What a ride to the top of Sazburg
    We loved our trip to the top. A variety of gondolas and the 3k gondola even has wifii in it so you can post the amazing views and pictures as you are riding to the top. Parking is free at the bottom and everything is mobility friendly nothing is to far to walk and it is all well connected. We loved this trip and felt the money paid and experience we got was value for $$

    A must visit, no matter if a skier or not.
    No matter if you are a skier or not, going to the top is a must do. Beautiful views, interesting things to learn,appropriate for families with kids, decent restaurant-cafeteria with stunning view. I can’t really think of anything negative!

Hugely disappointed today with the conditions on the mountain for skiing. Got here fairly late so missed the better conditions in the morning, but in the afternoon it was dreadful. Far too busy, no attempt to try to groom the pistes, so even the “easy” blue runs into the centre were full of moguls and loads of people, which made them far too difficult to ski, -I’m an reasonable skier and found it challenging. Had a problem with my daughter’s ski bindings and none of the staff on the mountain would help. Really disappointing, big queues, I genuinely think the management of the mountain are just trying to get as many people on the mountain as possible and no longer care about the condition of the pistes, no attempt to piste bash at any stage today. I have been here many times, probably won’t come to Kaprun again. Expensive and Really poor

Kitzsteinhorn ski resort - Pure discrimination, abuse of power and rude attitude by employees. Let me start by saying that I have an Asian face. While riding on Mountains Kitzstainhorn, I encountered discrimination several times - starting with the fact that in a round bar with loud music, located on the place, where Panoramabahn and 3K-connection arrives, I was served last, after the Europeans, although I was standing before them. But the end of the day today was really awful. I was standing not far from the Gletscherjet 2 station (near Alpincenter), and was with my skies and planning to slide down to Gletscherjet 1, and the time was around 16.15 on the clock However, an employee with name Gerald Oppeck stopped me and said that it was no longer possible to slide down. At the same time, several people moved down, and he did not say anything to them. I told him: “you see, everyone is riding, I am experiences skier and I’ll get there in 10 minutes. And this is still within open hours of the ski report”. I was about to move down, but he pushed me back. Moreover, he began to kick my ski latches with his boots so that they turned away, pushed me away and took my skis. I was shocked by his actions. A few minutes later, a family of Europeans with children arrived from Gletscherjet 2 lift (from the bottom station) and they wanted to ski down (the same direction as me). They talked to him in German, and he allowed them to pass. And another family past near him and ski down. I was really shocked. Firstly, it was still the opening time of the slope, and I had every right to go skiing. Secondly, he had no right to push me and take my skis. This is a clear abuse of power, and even a criminal case. At third, a bunch of other people were passing down, but he clearly didn’t say anything to them and just had something towards myself. And for me that was a pure discrimination. Only after I took out my phone and started record him on the camera, he turned away and leave.
Overall, you are paying quite a big amount of money for skiing in Kaprun/ Zell em See, and in fact you are not treated as a guest, and employees could easily let you down. I am very upset and disappointed and will never come to this place anymore.

Excellent lifts up to the top-very small queues. Wonderful views all the way. Great cafe, viewing platforms and exhibition areas at the top.

What a shame! The last time we were here in 2017 skiers could ski all over the glacier slopes in Summer. This time the glacier has nearly gone and only a patch of snow is made for children to sledge down. What are we doing to the environment?

Stayed in a hotel in Kaprun which provided Zell/Kaprun pass which was great. 'free' to go up to the top. We had great weather. It was fabulous. Lots of snow in June; views amazing (maybe not so great in poor weather); and we had a great time. 5000% better than the ice cave in Werfen!! Just go - its super in sunny weather. Have skied here in winter and possibly even better in Summer.

Fantastic views from the top. It takes 3 sections of transport to reach the top - a gondola then a ski-lift then a cable car to the very top. The tunnel through to the other side of the mountain is interesting - but very cold so be wrapped up.
