Skiing holiday at easter:
100% snow guaranteed skiing in your easter holiday
Whether with family, friends or as a couple – what could be nicer than spending Holy Week on a perfectly groomed slope in Austria? Kaprun not only offers an ideal entry into a snow guaranteed glacier ski area, but also many other winter activities. In the following you will find out why you should move the Easter egg hunt to the Alps, what you have to pay attention to when skiing at Easter and why the Kitzsteinhorn is particularly suitable as a ski area for your skiing holiday.
Skiing and snowboarding during the Easter holidays: what needs to be considered?
So that skiing at Easter is also fun, you should pay attention to snow reliability when choosing the ski area. Here, skiing on the glacier such as on the Kitzsteinhorn is highly recommended. The end of the season is far from in sight in this ski area at up to 3,000 meters above sea level.
If you want to ski without icy temperatures, you are in the right place on the slopes of Austria in spring and at Easter. Warmer temperatures and glacier sun are the order of the day. In order to protect yourself from the UV radiation of the sun at this altitude, you should definitely pay attention to the necessary sun protection.
Why is the Kitzsteinhorn the right ski area for Easter?
The Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area offers skiing almost all year round thanks to its altitude and snow-making facilities. That means: 100% guaranteed snow from october to mid-july!
But not only the snow guarantee speaks for the “Kitz”, as it is called by the locals, during the Easter holidays: The quality and composition of the snow at 3,000m altitude is simply different. It is not unusual to experience the best champagne powder or the first firn descents in spring. (Firn snow is a very special type of snow in high mountain regions, see below)

Off-piste skiers and powder freaks listen: skiing on firn snow
Ever experienced? That wonderful, grainy feeling in the firn? Firn snow is snow in high mountain areas that has been there for at least a year. Firn, or firn snow as it is called, is the result of multiple thawing and refreezing and becomes granular in the process. When the sun warms up the layers of snow in spring, this wonderful deep snow is created.
Fun on a ski holiday away from the piste too
Salzburg’s only glacier ski area also offers non-skiers many great attractions and the best views at over 3000m altitude. You can stretch your feet on the mountain during leisurely snowshoe hikes or relax and explore the Flying Spa wellness area in the Falkenstein.

Many excursion destinations are waiting to be explored, including Kaprun Castle, the Maisi Flitzer all-year toboggan run, the Casino Zell am See, the Sigmund Thun Gorge (only 5 minutes from Falkenstein), the National Park Museum and more …

Where else can you ski well at Easter?
In glacier ski areas in Austria, snow is guaranteed at Easter and skiing is therefore still very good. The Kitzsteinhorn is the only glacier ski area in the province of Salzburg. In Tyrol there is also the Stubai Glacier, the Pitztal Glacier, the Kaunertal Glacier, the Hintertux Glacier and the glacier ski area of Sölden. There is also a glacier ski area in Carinthia, the Mölltal Glacier. Styria awaits you with the Dachstein glacier.
Where else is snow guaranteed in April?
Most of the glacier ski areas in Austria actually offer guaranteed snow. This guarantees not only the altitude of the glaciers. Most areas also have a continuous snowmaking system, which is intended to prevent or slow down the melting of the glaciers through the snow produced.
