Centuries old Roman style Church .
Zell am See was founded in the 8th Century by monks from Salzburg. The Town is now the chief one in the Pinzgau region and one of the principal resorts in the Salzburg Province.
I spent most of my time hiking or visiting around Zell am see, so I cannot say if the Church is open to the public and what is more to the point ,how may steps to the top.
I guess I went to the top of the mountain to see the views.
In Zell am See you will find a lot of wide slopes accessible to all type of skiers, beginners, medium or advanced. Even so, there are some places, before a drop, where everybody stops and form a barrier. You have to carefully pass them in order not to bring down somebody with you.
In case of accidents medics will come shortly, in Austria this is very well organized, they have helicopters and all. But of course try to avoid direct impacts and hard falls.
