SNO-man says

A pretty, traditional village with a moderate ski area that plays host to World Cup races. The ski slopes provide beautiful views over Altenmarkt and neighbouring Radstadt and the surrounding mountains. The ski area is especially suited to families and novices as it boasts easy pistes and nursery slopes at the base stations. The new Königslehen 8-person cable-car in Radstadt takes you quickly and safely to the top of the mountain.

"Altenmarkt" by any other name

The Austrian resort is also known as Zauchensee and has common misspellings:

The direction which the various Altenmarkt slopes face can make or break your ski holiday. To guarantee good snow conditions, choose a resort with piste which face the right way for the time of year you're travelling.

- In the coldest winter months of January and February pick a resort with sunny south facing slopes, so your days on the snow doesn't feel like a polar expedition. Conversely, in the warmest spring skiing months of March and especially April, a resort with cool and shady north facing trails will ensure you're not riding on slush, but benefitting from best late season snow. The best destinations have areas which face in all directions so that you're guaranteed greating conditions whatever the weather. Altenmarkt has slopes facing NW.
