Non-skiers on Zell’s landmark mountain

Schmittastic winter joys away from the slopes

The Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See promises unforgettable winter experiences – and not just for skiers! Non-skiers can look forward to a colourful list of leisure activities on the Pinzgau’s scenic-view mountain as well. Sports, cuisine, art and culture – countless pleasurable moments await! 

The diverse Schmitten for non-skiers

Of course, the Schmitten in the Zell am See-Kaprun region is primarily known as a top ski resort in winter! But that’s by far not everything that Zell’s landmark mountain has to offer! 

What characterises winter on the Schmitten for non-skiers?

  • activity alternatives like winter and snowshoe hikes 
  • culinary joys and hospitality at the many huts and mountain restaurants 
  • numerous sunny days that invite you to soak up the sun and enjoy the view 
  • fascinating, family-friendly exhibitions 
  • the “Art on the Mountain” project, a unique combination of nature and culture 

You’re ready to visit the Pinzgau’s adventure mountain without skies? That’s great! Get an overview of the varied activities for non-skiers … 


Winter hiking as an alternative activity

If you prefer to explore the Schmitten on foot rather than on a pair of skis, you have two options: winter and snowshoe hikes are two of the most relaxing ways to be active outside in nature. Relaxation and nature – a match made in heaven! That’s what you can look forward to if you decide to go on a hike through the snowy winter landscape of Zell am See. 

Sounds marvellous? Well, it is – and certainly worth a tour! Browse the guided hikes on Zell’s adventure mountain … 

Exhibitions on the wintry Schmittenhöhe

Get to know the Pinzgau’s adventure mountain in all its facets! An essential part of that is a journey back into the past of Zell am See’s landmark mountain. How? During a visit to the anniversary exhibition “90 years of tradition & innovation” at the mountain station of the Schmittenhöhe. The interactive family exhibition “Areit1400” deals with the past as well but takes a look to the future too. Find out more about these two exciting activity options!
