You don’t need a car to go skiing

Most of the guests don’t even know where their car is. Why? Because they left the key on arrival and don’t need it here. The highest point of entry into the wonderful world of Ski amadé is here. At 1,350m above sea level with guaranteed snow in the World Cup resort of Zauchensee.


The joy of skiing in Zauchensee, right on the slopes

Ski in – ski out, it’s that easy. It is only 100 meters from the ski room in Sportalm to the next lift. From here, slopes for every level, from gentle to fast, are accessible to you. The Zauchensee Lift Company grooms them very well in any case. With the new gondola lift, the Panorama-Link, Zauchensee is now directly connected to Flachauwinkl, Kleinarl, Flachau, Wagrain and St. Johann/Alpendorf. From Z to A, so to speak – with 210 kilometers of trails.

Giant slide fun for you

Free riding – freedom in a world of white

Around Zauchensee there are a few peaks that offer peace and natural enjoyment away from the hustle and bustle of the slopes. On a ski tour, which can also be booked with a ski guide, you will experience the slower side of winter. The descent through the powder snow is the reward for the athletic ascent. Use the cable cars when freeriding and feel your own tracks in the untouched powder snow, or you can hire a local professional. Off-piste – just what you always wanted!


A romantic ride through the snow

Warmly dressed and wrapped in fluffy blankets, you will go on a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride on two runners through the deep snow-covered winter world. The sleighs offer space for up to 14 people. On the way through the Altenmarkt-Zauchensee region, cozy huts and restaurants invite you to stop for a bite to eat.

We have known and appreciated Zauchensee for many years, winter and summer alike. We (unfortunately) only now discovered the Hotel Sportalmmm. Pampering from morning to night. Everyone is always approachable and friendly, having fun at work and with each other (laughter and joy from the kitchen). Feel-good room, everything very clean, a great breakfast, also with special requests. The highlight: a 5-course dinner with an additional salad bar and cheese buffet is an extremely successful surprise every evening. We have never experienced such a kitchen. All in all, simply a pleasure that cannot be overestimated. Thank you very much, we have already registered for the newsletter.

Our second home. That is what Sportalmmm in Zauchensee has been for us for many years. We are always pampered very personally by the Dolschek family and their super-professional employees. The gastronomy is a real pleasure. As true Flemish connoisseurs, we always treat ourselves to the most delicious dishes and the best wines.

Gäste Default Testimonials

Zauchensee and Sportalm can be described in three words: familiarity – enjoyment – wellbeing We felt incredibly comfortable at Sportalmmm right from the start and are enthusiastic about the great food. Starting with breakfast (3, 7 and 9 minute eggs, anything is possible), to snacks and supper as well. It’s highly enjoyable! You just feel good in this hotel. The location is first class, right in the ski area. The view from the cozy living room in the hotel is unique! There is no better place for our skiing holiday than Zauchensee and Sportalmmm.

This hotel is big surprise for me. We are well travelled and I would not expect this from 4star hotel. Perfect location- few steps from slopes. Very clean- very precise cleaning every day. Suite- we have booked suite on 1st floor with view on slopes, enough space for 2 people / separate room for kids. Saunarium and wellness- very nice saunas and relax rooms. Dining- breakfast and dinners- I was in a very luxurious hotel this year in Palm Dubai and that time I have said these were my best dinners in my life. I come to 4star Austrian hotel with no expectation and the dinner is one of the best in my life. This is a reason why we will be back as the food is not just food but a real pleasure. Overall very quiet and relaxing place, worth to visit.
