The Schmittenhöhe, which is called by the locals Schmitten, is located directly above the city of Zell am See. From there you have a wonderful view on the Lake Zeller See and a panorama of over 30 three-thousand meter peaks in the Hohe Tauern.

The eternal ice on the glacier makes the Kitzsteinhorn a winter paradise almost all year round. With the 3K K-onnection it is possible to reach the summit station on the Kitzsteinhorn (3029 m a.s.l) directly from the center of Kaprun (768 m a.s.l) via the Maiskogel with a 12 km long cable car. At the summit station you are at the highest point in the Salzburg region. Everyone will find the right slope on the glacier. For example, for professionals there is a challenge: the Black Mamba, a grommed slope that is up to 63% steep. This black slope is 1000 meters long and comes 290 meters in altitude. Snowboarders can let off steam in the Glacier Park, Easy Park and Central Park snow parks as well as in the Superpipe.
