Take a cable car to the summit of Schmittenhohe on the eastern edge of the Alps for a sweeping view of the surrounding areas and lakes below. Ski and snowboard down the Funslope, including tunnels, waves, and steep curves, and ride back up to the summit on the cable car in cabins designed by the Porsche Design Studio. Race a friend down the Skimovie course where cameras will track your movements and measure precise time, using video analysis to determine who is the fastest and who has the best style.

    The views from the Schmittenhöhe in Zell am see and the many 3000 m is impressive in the environment. However, there is a lift up to the Summit, which has resulted in that in the summer not only hikers and mountain bikers enjoy the nature, but masses of people. And get some bids. Playgrounds for the children, brandy and mood music for the adults. So the Schmittenhöhe is a piece of nature more an amusement park because.

    The Schmittenhöhe Zeller Lake is certainly one of the jewels of the Alps. From the top you can see 36 "3000-Summit" when visibility is good (she even but not counted), also the glacier area, and of course, at the bottom, also the lake itself. Above, invite several beautiful alpine pastures to the rest. Many are open all year round. The rope drive is very safe, with driver and computer-controlled. It takes 6 minutes. It starts about 2 km north of Zell am see. But also on foot, you can walk to the Schmittenhöhe. Takes about 3 hours. Several routes are possible. It is harmless, but footwear is recommended.

    We made a nice excursion to the Schmittenhöhe. Went to the lift station with the local bus within 10 minutes. The queues were pretty short to lift. Very beautiful views up there at 1900 m. Good food in the main restaurant.
