Ski holidays in the Zell am See-Kaprun region in Salzburg - Skiing fun high above lake Zell
The Schmittenhöhe is the mountain directly above the town of Zell am See. If you take the brandnew design-gondola to the top station, you will have an amazing view over the mountains and the lake. But, the view is not the most important factor about the Schmittenhöhe - these are the slopes and the skiing facilities.
Great skiing sport - wherever you look
The variety of slopes for every skill and level is amazing. Sunny days, you start on the sunny slopes of the Sonnalm - the name is the programm. Fairly easy going slopes, flat und not too steep hills wait for skiers with ambitions. The sun is shinig from early morning. As soon as the sun get higher and stronger, it is time for the more demanding and a bid steeper slopes near the top of the Schmittenhöhe.
A couple of great slopes take you to the Kettingjoch or the Kapellen-chairlift. If you want, now is the best time to ski on the slopes towards the Areit and Schüttdorf. If you are into real great skiing and if you are an experienced skier, you should try the Standard slope and the Trass slope to the bottom of the gondola. After you skied the red and black slopes, it is time for a rest in a cozy hut. Breiteckalm, Schnaps-Hans, Areintalm, Hochzelleralm or Sonnalm - they all look forward seeing you.
Winterfun for everybody
At the Schmittenhöhe there is much more to do than just "normal" skiing. On the top you will find the longes Funslope XXL in the world. There you'll find jumps, tunnels, walls, curves and much more which is fun and exciting. Bigger kids like the funslope too. At the night slope in Zell am See you will meet skiers, who do not get tired in the evening. At certain foto-points you can take specific holiday-pictures or you can got for a spin at the skimovie track. The Schmittenhöhe is very versatile - everybody can have fun, all day long.
NEW - the zellamseeXpress
Time for a change. In Winter 2016/2017 we set a new standard and prepare the mountain for a new area of skiing in the Salzburger Land. The skiresorts Zell am See and the skicricus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn will be connected. The new gondola zellamseeXpress is the first step towards the connection. Actually, the connection has already existed between 1930 and 1980. By the new gondola between the Schmittenhöhe and Viehofen, the slopes are expanded by another 3,3 km of red slopes. The future will be great: in at least one ore two years, the connection will be completed and there will be the greatest ski resort in Austria.
