Schmittenhohe Mountain, Zell Am See Reviews

  • The resort is rather so so I’d have to say. I will recommend to go to Kitzsteinhorn which is 30 mins away by bus. Of course the view with the lake is stunning, the runs near the top of the mountain are pretty nice. However after the middle of the mountain there is a blue run that goes down to the cable cars and that run goes through the forest. So it’s the worst run ever, it’s very narrow and if it isn’t cold it gets icy. In many places there are no fences, so you can easily fall off and nobody will find you... In restaurants on the mountain there is a lot of junk food like sausages, meat in meat with cheese and so on, almost no healthy food or vegan options. Guys, it’s 2018, it’s time to change for better!)

  • Love this ski lift, good free car parking and well connected to ski busses and lokalbahn; the ski run down is perfect although challenging in the spring. From 2017 the major capacity/speed increase (see photos), long queues will be a thing of the past. the general facilities in the Talsatation have been upgraded too.

  • Love this place one of the best resorts we've been to. Wide open slopes with loads of trails through the trees

  • Good one but not for freeride

  • Really enjoyed our stay here. The pistes are not massively varied, 3 to 4 days and you've done it all several times in Zell. It was quite busy all the time, but we were here in peak season. There was always a Q for the lifts and chairs, but not usually massive. The main schmittenhohe bahn houses 2 lifts, the trass express and the main schmittenhohe cable car. The trass is more frequent and quicker to get you close to the top. Area lift pass was €240 for an adult, so you can go visit Kaprun or the glacier on the free bus. Lots of ski schools, so stick to the reds on the right hand side to avoid them.
