Austria's longest downhill valley run - 1,930 metres of vertical drop in one non-stop descent!
Austria’s longest downhill valley run! Boasting 1,930 metres of vertical drop, it offers pure, unadulterated skiing pleasure – and it can be skied in one run to boot! The Zell am Ziller valley descent is the piste with the greatest altitude difference in the whole of Austria and, therefore, the ‘HöhenFresser Tour’ – literally the ‘Height Devouring Tour’ – most certainly lives up to its name!
If you start at the highest point in the Arena – the ‘Übergangsjoch’ at an altitude of 2,500 metres – and ski all the way down to the valley then you cover an astounding almost 2,000 vertical metres over a distance of some 10 kilometres.
Tip: The Karspitzbahn cable-car in Zell takes you in just minutes to the legendary ‘Sport’ downhill run, which can most certainly be described as one of the finest runs in the Zillertal valley. And, thanks now to the new Zell run and the extended distance all the way down into the valley, avid ski enthusiasts can enjoy a very special treat.
