On 30th of November 2019 the 3K K-onnection will go into operation and will offer ski-in-ski-out from Kaprun to the glacier for the first time. The first tri-cable gondola in Salzburg, it will carry passengers from the Maiskogel straight to the Langwied area on the Kitzsteinhorn.
As of 30th of November 2019, it will then be possible to reach the mountain station on the Kitzsteinhorn (TOP OF SALZBURG, elev. 3029 m) by means of a string of pearls consisting of six cableways running from the town center of Kaprun (768 m) via the Maiskogel. This 12 km scenic ride will not only be the longest continuous gondola axis, it will also rise the greatest elevation (2261 vertical meters) in the Eastern Alps.
Ski-in-Ski-out from Kaprun town center
The K-ONNECTION offers guests in Kaprun a whole new holiday dimension in the form of ski-in-ski-out: Just imagine, now being able to set out from the town center of Kaprun – the ultimate in convenience, no car required – riding all the way up to the glacier, returning in the afternoon on skis and winding down your fantastic day of skiing with a full dose of après-ski. The Kaprun Center, which is also the valley station of the MK Maiskogelbahn, boasts a modern ski depot with up to 2000 storage lockers along with the spacious Bründl sports & rental shop, providing the ideal infrastructure for a marvelously enjoyable ski getaway.
100 % snow guarantee and highest piste quality
At the same time as the 3K K-onnection opens, the upgrades and expansion of snowmaking capability on the Maiskogel will also be completed, promising an early start to ski season on Kaprun’s popular family mountain as well as highest piste quality all winter long.
New: two lift gateways to the Kitzsteinhorn
The opening of the K-ONNECTION now means that, for the first time, guests have two different lift options for reaching the Kitzsteinhorn. Locals as well as guests living in town are within easy walking distance of the Kaprun Center and ski depot, able to begin their journey up to the Kitzsteinhorn by hopping aboard the MK Maiskogelbahn. Day visitors and those wishing to reach the glacier ski area direct will likely head for the valley station of the tried-and-true Glacier Jet lift.
