Zurs après ski
With many bars and restaurants being based out of hotels, depending on where you stay you may not need to venture far from your hotel for the entire week.
The Mountain Restaurant Seekopf is one of the best lunch spots on the slopes. Their comprehensive menu has a bit of everything; local delicacies such as the wienerschnitzel are incredible, international favourites will please every palate, and the kids menu is sure to please the fussiest of eaters. If you fancy a warming drink they do a great glühwein, and you can’t leave without a taste of another of the region’s specialities, jagertee.
You can ski straight from the slopes into your après bar of choice at the end of the day, though if you want a seat on one of the Hotel Zürserhof’s sun loungers you’ll have to get there early. With a sunny south facing terrace and outside bar, it’s one of the hottest properties on the mountain.
Slip off your ski boots and head to Thurnher’s Alpenhof- once you’re there it’s easy to settle in for the night. Their roof top terrace has some of the best views imaginable, and once the sun goes down you can head downstairs for a cocktail in the piano bar before dinner. The candlelight restaurant is one of the Austria’s most highly rated gourmet restaurants, and you can feast on 8 courses whilst enjoying spectacular mountain views.
Those after a more debaucherous end to the evening should head to the Vernissage. Open daily until 3am, a visit here will often be followed by a trip home on ‘James’ the communal taxi- a flat fare will get you back to any hotel in resort.
When is best to ski Zurs?
There are great times to be had in Zurs throughout the season- though depending on what you’re after, you may be better served heading over at a particular time. Cineastic Gondolas has been running over the last few years- a medley of cinema, dance, fireworks and music- if you’re around while it’s on it’ll prove a truly unforgettable experience.
The best snow can usually be found during February and March, so this is the perfect time for the powder hounds amongst you to head over. There’s plenty of hikeable freeriding terrain, and the local guides can take you to hidden stashes days after the last snowfall- though of course if you’re able to fit in some heliskiing then you’ll find some powder whenever you travel.
For relaxed skiers, later in the season is the best time to visit. There are fewer crowds and the weather is warmer- you’ll be able to take advantage of the many sunny terraces in the region, and lounge the afternoons away with a drink.
Spend Christmas in Zurs and the week will fly by. Drink glühwein whilst wandering the Christmas market, and Santa may even turn up with gifts on the day itself.
