Overview - chalet description - Chalet Mara description

From its riverside location, the Chalet Mara is really handy for getting out and about to see the full Zell am See-Kaprun ski area - along with some great views. Firstly, for beginners, you've got the Lechnerberg nursery slopes less than 5 minute's walk away. Take a shortcut through the old railway tunnel and the Maiskogel slopes aren't much further. Also up the end of the road is the free ski bus stop, so it's dead easy to get over to the Kitzsteinhorn glacier or Zell am See's Schmittenhöhe - both around 15 minutes in either direction. Also Kaprun's centre is just over the bridge, so on the chalet hosts' night off you'll have plenty of choice for dinner nearby or for a bit of après action.

The Mara has nine well sized bedrooms, all comfortably decorated in a typically Austrian style but with a bright and cheery, modern vibe. There are even some family rooms. A couple of the rooms have their private bathrooms separated from the room, so if you pick one of these rooms you may want to save a little space in your suitcase for a bathrobe to make things easier in the mornings.

We know you're here for the skiing or snowboarding, but if you do fancy a bit of down time then there's also a comfy lounge area with satellite telly and free WiFi, so you can update your status and make all your friends at home jealous.

Located in Salzburg, Kaprun is perhaps best known for being the home of the magnificent Kitzsteinhorn glacier and was the first Austrian resort to partake in glacier skiing way back in the 60’s. As with many other Austrian resorts, organic growth over time has meant much of the town’s architecture still presents a quaint throwback to days gone by - those wishing for the fairy-tale holiday setting may very well find their wishes come true in the shadow of the regal 12th century Castle, or amongst the delight...
Kaprun’s pistes are split fairly evenly in terms of ability level, with the majority being classed as suitable for intermediate skiers. Don’t let this scare you off or lull you into a false sense of security though, as newbies and adrenaline junkies are fantastically catered for too. Of particular appeal to families and those with limited experience is Maiskogel- known as ‘The Family Mountain’. Accessible by the Maiskogelbahn gondola, the area is accessed separately from the larger Kitzsteinhorn area of t...
Despite the relatively modest size of the resort, there are still almost 50 different bars and restaurants to choose between. The evening’s festivities can kick off before you’ve even left the slopes; the Häuslalm’s famous terrace bar is the perfect location to start your après and indulge in some traditional Austrian fare whilst looking down onto the village below. Nestled right at the base of the slopes, Zur Lederhos´n is the first stop for many fresh off the lifts. Boasting a heated terrace with live...
