At the top of the Schmittenhöhe there is a large and sunny terrace situated with on occasion live music. The ski area of Zell am See extends above the tree line and is shaped in the way of a horseshoe, with on one side mostly blue pistes and on the right mainly red pistes. In between there is a blue piste and several challenging black slopes. When skiing down the slopes of the Schmittenhöhe there is an amazing view on the village and the lake which is situated in the valley. The experienced skier will have plenty of challenging pistes available in this area, however beginners can also truly enjoy themselves.
There is a fun park situated on the Schmittenhöhe with a 110 metres long halfpipe and cross-country skiers can access a trail on the lake from January to February. Hikers can walk over the Schmittenhöhe up to an altitude of 2000 metres from where one will have a memorable view. Additionally there is the possibility to participate in a guided hike or snowshoe hike. During some winters, if the "Zeller See" lake has frozen up enough after plenty of nights with below zero temperatures, it will be possible to enjoy going ice skating on the lake.
With the ski pass you will also have access to the ski areas of Saalbach/Hinterglemm/Leogang/Fieberbrunn. You will have access to a total of 408 km of slopes.
