sightseeing and excursions in Zell am See

Having reached Austria safely, I am now on the campsite atvSport Woferlgut.
The train connections at Munich, Buchloe and Salzburg were easy to do, however I have learnt that travelling light is the best thing to do to keep it manageable. People were very friendly and helpful in giving directions and whilst boarding and alighting the trains.

We could walk in the streets closer to Memmingen but we could no go till C&A. However, we could find a nice Pizza shop and a bakery in Memmingen. Free seats were readily available on all the trains right from Memmingen to Bruck-Fusch.

At the campsite, our mobile home was clean and well equipped. The reception staff aren't that helpful in deciding which activities/ visits to places of interest could we do without a car.

To cut the chase, I would like some help with itenarary for 4 days in sightseeing and skiing or other sport activities.
Thanks in advance.

Only one area in the Zell Am See is showing cross country ski open and it only has 3 km of track open:

High Trails on mountain and glacier

It is a great experience to enjoy cross-country skiing in quietness on
the mountains. The 2 kilometres high trail in Zell am See is easy to
reach within 5 minutes from the centre. Just take the cityXPress to
the trail on the Schmittenhöhe. In Kaprun the 3 kilometres glacier
trail is located in 2900 metres above the sea level and offers
exceptional conditions. Cross-country skiers can do their
high-altitude-workouts already in autumn on the Kitzsteinhorn.

The well know summer glacier skiing is at Ramsau Dachstein but that would be two hours by train:

"Whatever you feel like" - is the Dachstein glacier's motto and the
offer is accordingly multifaceted.... is showing three Austrian downhill ski areas open:

Stubai expects to stay open through July 5:
