The Pitztaler Gletscher, Austria's highest ski resort standing at nearly 3 500 metres above sea level, boasts three patisseries along its snow and ski coated route.

The patisserie at its peak, Café 3440, is favoured for both its vantage point and a locally beloved dessert: Kaiserschmarrn - which is, essentially, a form of scrambled pancakes or flapjacks.

Another popular dessert is the glacier snowcake or 'Gletscher-Schneertorte' in the local dialect. This tasty treat incorporates flavours of coconut and pineapple and is a fluffy and light delight.

Check out the video to see how the beloved alt-pancakes are made at these incredible altitudes and the views from its glass-paned walls.
