Snow all year round on the Kitzsteinhorn in Zell am See-Kaprun
In summer when it is hot in the valley a hike to the Kitzsteinhorn glacier is highly refreshing. Snow and ice never melt at an altitude of 3000m, not even in the warm season. Back in the valley you will probably feel hot but you can go swimming in Lake Zell. You will never forget this extraordinary combination of ice and water sports in the region of Zell am See-Kaprun.
