2 September 2019 – New for winter 2019/20, Crystal Ski Holidays has added the Austrian resort of Zell am Ziller to its programme.
Home to Austria’s longest continuous downhill run, Zell am Ziller offers picture perfect skiing. The longest run is 10km and descends 1930m in height from start to finish.
Not only is the resort new for this winter, it is also a new ski area for Crystal Ski Holidays. The Zillertal Arena covers four mountains and is a perfect ski area for intermediate skiers with over 60% of the area covered with red runs. There are also six snow parks on offer and the area has 75% of slopes covered by snow cannons.
Zell am Ziller is a traditional Austrian village with plenty of shops, cafes and a lively après scene. The four valleys offer great skiing with 143km slopes and three funparks. Snowboarders can enjoy the popular hotspot of Gerlos.
For beginners there’s a large, wide gentle area, perfect for developing skills before hitting the slopes. When not on the slopes, there are plenty of non-ski activities for customers to enjoy. These include ice skating, tobogganing, snow tubing and cross country trails
The resort is just over an hour from Innsbruck Airport or a three hour transfer to Memmingen Airport which is a new airport for Crystal to support the growth in Austria for this winter. There are public transport links to Mayrhofen and Innsbruck and a free bus service from Zell am Ziller to nearby ski resort of Konigsleiten.
The Hotel Neuwirt is a 3* half-board property. There’s a ski room with heated boot rack and when relaxing a small library, lounge and sports bar to enjoy. The a la carte restaurant serves up traditional dishes.
Chris Logan, Managing Director at Crystal Ski Holidays said: “We are delighted to be adding to our Austrian programme for the coming season. We recently announced the resort of Hopfgarten for winter 2019/20 and with the addition of Zell am Ziller we now have 40 resorts for our customers to choose from when booking their ski holidays in Austria this winter.
We are always looking to find resorts that will appeal to our customers and we think Zell am Ziller will be a very popular addition to the programme. Not only are we introducing a new resort, but this also means we have added a new ski area, Zillertal, to the programme for the upcoming ski season.”
