Many a skier and boarder are like sheep following the crowds to fashionable resorts as they know no better.
The Kitzsteinhorn Glacier at over 3000mts in Kaprun has the snow surety that other more well known resorts have not. The glacier sits in the middle of a fantastic ski arena that offers you a wide variety of on and off-piste runs its neighbouring resorts of Zell am See and Saalbach only a short bus ride away.
For training courses the Glacier is second to none and is a popular location where you will find many pro-skiers and boarders getting in some pre-season training from October on over. Those wishing to take advantage of the early snow can qualify as an Instructor before the season starts by doing one of the Ski and Baord training courses held on the Glacier each year and then go staright on to a job for the winter season.
The advantage of using the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier in Austria to do a qualification as opposed to flying half way around the world is felt in your pocket with huge savings on courses.
The local towns of Kaprun and Zell am See have a great night life and varied accommodation.
