Easter in the snow

Zauchensee is nestled in a basin which is blessed with snowfall in winter. It is not uncommon to find snow heights of up to 2 metres on the mountain - even in spring. Therefore you can even go skiing over the Easter holidays. In the Easter week there will be a special children’s programme with colouring Easter eggs, looking for Easter nests … On top, a special bargain will be available in the Ski Amadé ski region: Children up to the age of 15 will go skiing for free if one or both parents buy a 6-day ski pass.
