Piste closure on the Schmittenhöhe

In order to ensure optimal snow distribution and preparation, the slopes are closed in the evening from 4:00 p.m. Our piste machines are then in use, and some of them are attached to cable winches, so skiing on the slopes is simply too dangerous! The freshly prepared snow must also rest. Only then will there be super-prepared and resilient descents the next day!
