Have you ever been camping in winter? You might be surprised if I tell you that year-round camping at a ski resort is so popular that you need to reserve your pitch well in advance! I will show you what a camping site looks like in winter and tell you whether you need to keep your ski equipment in the camper? Where to dry wet clothes and shoes? How far is it from the campsite to the slope and what to do in the evenings at the campsite if you are bored in the camper? You will also find answers to all these questions in our video from the SportCamp Woferlgut campsite, where we slept last year while testing the Hymer camper from the Elcamp Group, and if you prefer to read below you will find answers to everything I wrote about earlier.

Camping and hotel in the mountains

Sportcamp Woferlgut is a year-round campsite in Zell am See. It is 6 kilometers from the city center and the lake itself and about the same distance from the ski slopes. It is actually located in the town of Bruck, which is the beginning (or end - depending on which side you look from) of the famous Großglocknerstraße. Therefore, also at the foot of mountains such as Kitzsteinhorn or Großglockner. Kaprun is 10 km away.

There are, of course, plots within the campsite.


There are many of them, and some of them are located by the swimming pond. The plots are connected to water, electricity and gas, as well as the possibility of discharging gray water into the sewage system. The gas connection will be appreciated by camper users, especially in winter. When going to such a campsite, you do not have to take additional gas cylinders and therefore add additional weight to the camper.

The campsite also offers year-round cottages and camping trailers .

If you can't find a place on the lot, you can book a place in the hotel.

Campsite and hotel with a children's pool

Guests of the campsite and hotel can use the saunas and baths for free, but the swimming pool is subject to an additional fee. A single entry is quite expensive - it costs about EUR 23, but it is most profitable to simply buy a whole-week pass, then the amount is almost three times lower. When I say swimming pool , I mean a huge complex of swimming pools, saunas and baths. There you will find a recreational swimming pool, an Olympic swimming pool, an outdoor swimming pool also open in winter, a large jacuzzi, a giant slide and a children's pool with shallow water and a small slide. There is also a wellness section and a fitness studio with the possibility of hiring a private trainer. It's a real spa in the mountains !


The campsite also has its own swimming pond with transparent water. A long pier was built on this small lake and a very long slack line with an auxiliary rope was suspended. There is also a second playground at the campsite with a zipline and a free rope park by the water. It is available to everyone free of charge and does not require additional protection, because it is not suspended high on trees but very low to the ground.

Child-friendly campsite and hotel

As I wrote in the previous paragraph, there are two playgrounds in the campsite, and in the water park there is a small, shallow swimming pool for children, which is like a water playground.

Additionally, the campsite offers animations. The campsite has its own train station which, before each animation, drives around the entire campsite and invites children to play together.


The hotel also has a playroom where children will find a maze with balls and a slide, as well as soft, large building blocks. There are also arcade games and a mini cinema.

Also remember about the swimming pond, where there are also attractions for children .

Zell am See Austria

There are three main ski areas in the resort: Schmitten, Kitzsteinhorn and the third, smallest of them - Maiskogel. In these three sectors you will find a total of 279 km of slopes, 5 gondolas, 10 chairlifts and 9 T-bar lifts. A combined ski pass for these 3 resorts costs approximately EUR 225.

In this region, 85% of the slopes are artificially snowed, and there are also many illuminated ski slopes. There is also a well-equipped snow park, and there are several designated places where you can ski off-piste.


In all these places you will also find many apres-ski points.

In summer, Zell am See also attracts tourists with its numerous hiking and cycling trails. There are many beaches around Lake Zeller, and you can swim safely in the lake.


Skiing Austria

Let's move on to the most important issues: how can you live in a camper in the winter and deal with storing ski equipment, drying shoes and clothes? Everything is well thought out at the campsite and that is why all guests have a ski room with a equipment drying room at their disposal, where you can easily leave your shoes and wet clothes to dry.

The city ski bus leaves from the campsite and takes you straight to the gondola. It runs in the morning and afternoon, but if you don't make it in time for the morning transfers, or you want to return from the slope earlier, you can use an additionally paid camping bus. Just make an appointment in advance at the reception.

Hymer camper

During this trip, we lived in a Hymer camper, which performed perfectly in winter conditions, both during overnight stays and driving on snow-covered Alpine roads. The camper chassis, i.e. the Mercedes Sprinter , is one of the best chassis on which campers are currently built and driving this camper is a lot of fun for the driver. The camping structure itself, made by the Hymer brand, allows for comfortable living without any compromises. You can read more about the camper test from the film here: Winter trip with a Hymer BMC T 580 camper - CampRest test .
