We’re reaching out just before the winter season as the first snowflakes touch the valley floor with news from Saalbach Hinterglemm, Leogang and Fieberbrunn. Winter sports fanatics have plenty to look forward to, including new lifts, cool events, even more comfort than before and a real XXL winter.
From the centre to the mountain with zero waiting time
8 is the new 68 people fit into the new Asitzmuldenbahn lift in Leogang. In the summer, the old 6-seated chairlift was sent into retirement and replaced with a new and much more powerful lift. Instead of the previous 2400, now 3500 people can comfortably make their way up to the Kleiner Asitz peak from the Asitzmulde hollow within an hour — the waiting times associated with this bottleneck are thus history. Thanks to the automatic restraining bar, the ride with the lift turns into a safe and exciting experience, especially for families with children. Incidentally, the new valley station was moved by around 55 metres. As a result, the slope can now be safely crossed from the Sportbahn Asitzkogel and the Asitzmuldenbahn to arrive at the valley station.

Reservoir updateDuring summer, they are a true asset for the surrounding landscape: The reservoir lakes, harmoniously embedded into the mountainscape. In the winter, they are indispensable for the snow-making systems, as only artificial snow made from pure water mixed with cold air makes its way onto the slopes of the Skicircus. This means even more snowfall certainty around the Hochalm mountain pasture. The two existing reservoir ponds in the Streuböden area in Fieberbrunn were also expanded. The volume of the lake was increased by nearly tenfold. This reservoir pond supplies all of Streuböden, Maiskopf and Doischberg and guarantees skiing operations during Christmas.
