Und wenn selbst bei Sonnenuntergang der Sinn noch nicht nach pulsierendem Nachtleben oder Wellness in der nahen Therme Tauern-Spa-Kaprun steht, bietet die Flutlichtpiste vor der Haustür des „Apartment Central“ noch verlängerten Skigenuss bis in die Abendstunden.

Insider-Tipp: Absolut lohnenswert ist eine gemütliche Wanderung zum einzigartigen Sägenmuseum von Fritz Sendlhofer, hoch über den Dächern von Zell am See, mit der weltgrößten Sägen-Sammlung und der ältesten Säge Europas. Der urige Zeller ist Bart-Olympiameister und braut in seinem „Sagl-Bräu“ am Zeller Sonnberg feinsten Gerstensaft und der Ausblick auf die Bergstadt ist von hier oben atemberaubend schön.
