Kaprun is open all year thanks to its glacier that reaches up to 3203m. The funicular railway has now been replaced by a new gondola system. There is a bottle-neck to get up the mountain from the base at Kaprun but once there, there seldom seems to be a long queue. Great off-piste to be had but most of the Kaprun mountain falls within the beginner-intermediate category. However, your pass will allow you to visit nearby Zell am See (5km away) which is bigger and has more advanced terrain. Off the slopes, Kaprun is a large sprawling place with a good mixture of traditional Austrian eating and newer cuisine and has a lively nightlife.
