Novità Schmitten - Zell am See
Enjoy skiing and sunshine on long runs and relaxing on lovely sun terraces.
The first ascent with modern cable car facilities – including the stylish Schmittenhöhe cable car from the Por-sche Design Studio – is the beginning of your winter adventure. The Schmittenhöhe cable car began operation in 1927 and was the first cable car to transport guests in Land Salzburg. A lot has happened since then: now there are 26 cable car facilities bringing winter athletes up to an altitude of 2000m and 77 beautifully groomed piste kilometers. Guests are also enticed by the inviting sun terraces of many huts and their superb culinary delights.
New Glockner lift
The Schmitten is tireless and nearly every year there is a new attraction for its guests. Also this winter; the new 8-seater Glocknerbahn chair lift, the third child-safe chair lift on the mountain, goes into operation. The safety bar locks and is ideal for transporting children. It is possible to transport seven children accompanied by one adult. The lift is equipped with heated, cushioned seats and weather hoods as well as an height-adjustable access magic carpet, which is innovative and child-friendly. A photoelectric barrier recognizes the height of the skier and can raise the magic carpet as much as 10cm.
Another highlight, on the sunny side of the Schmitten, in the 2013/14 winter season: the Funslope next to the Hochmais lift on the Sonnenalm – with guaranteed fun elements such as the Schnecken (snail), Tunnel or Steilkurven (steep curves). With an unbelievable length of 1.300m the Schmitten Funslope is the longest Funslope in the world and guarantees burning thighs by the end of the course!
The Snowpark area is right next to the Funslope. It makes the first step into the freestyle world easier, with its butter boxes, wave boxes and kickers. However, it is not only for beginners, advanced freestylers can also find it demanding.
Everyone is a movie star
Feel like a star on the slopes with a ski movie. Tomorrow´s film stars can shoot an action-packed ski movie here. There is also the skiline-piste kilometer for those who want to know how many kilometers they have skiied/boarded on the Schmitten in one day. Both the ski movie and the piste kilometer can be downloaded under www.schmitten.at and sent to those at home.
The GoPro HD Action Camera is a „must“ for guests on the Schmitten slopes and can be borrowed free of charge from the InfoCenter, to shoot one´s own ski day film.

AESTHETIC VIEWS AND GREAT SKI-RUNS
- A new ski route and 5 new works of art in the piste gallery
- Plus: snow guaranteed on 90% of slopes!
Art is playing a starring role on the Schmittenhöhe this winter. 5 new works of art will be gracing one of Europe’s largest open-air artistic spaces. The year-round exhibition of oversized wooden sculptures is spread across the entire ski area and the piste network, and is a hot topic of conversation for locals and international guests alike. Visitors can look forward to a new project entitled “Snow Art”, which will be opening in mid-January 2007. After the enormous Mozart birthday cake was unveiled last year, the artists’ snowy plans for this year are being kept strictly under wraps.
Valley descents of 1,000 m with guaranteed snow (90% of slopes are suitable for artificial snow), winter hiking trails at 2,000 m, the slopes gallery, cosy mountain huts and modern restaurants, half-pipes, a permanent timed route and carving routes are just some of the many things on offer.
It’s also possible to carve in the morning and board in the afternoon, renting the required equipment directly on the slopes.
Guests can also use the Ski Alpin Card (the season ticket for the European sporting region of Zell am See-Kaprun and the Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang ski circus).
