The Snow Space Salzburg Bergbahnen started winter operations on December 24th. The central cable cars and slopes in the three villages of Flachau, Wagrain and St. Johann - Alpendorf are already open. This also includes the Panorama Link, the new connecting cable car between the Grießenkar ski mountain in Flachau / Wagrain and the neighboring ski areas Flachauwinkl / Kleinarl and Zauchensee.
From winter season 2020/21 on, skifans can enjoy skiing from A to Z, from Alpendorf to Zauchensee
“Today, a vision that has been cherished for decades has come true: skiing over the 12 most beautiful peaks and 5 valleys of the Salzburg Pongau in the heart of Ski amadé. The new Panorama Link connection cable car makes it possible and sets a milestone in the history of our winter sports destination, ”explains Wolfgang Hettegger, CEO of Snow Space Salzburg Bergbahnen. The Panorama Link is a modern 10-seater gondola lift.
With the cable cars that go into operation today, three quarters of the slopes between Flachau / Wagrain and Zauchensee can be used. "We have chosen the cable cars in such a way that the largest possible range of slopes is available at the beginning of the season. If the number of visitors allows it, we will open additional cable cars at short notice," promises Hettegger.
And the best part: With the new Panorama Link connection lift, you can enjoy the full variety of features of all three ski areas - with their combined total of over 200 kilometers of slopes – in a single day of skiing and with just one lift ticket.
You travel between the towns of Wagrain and Kleinarl while enjoying the amazing panorama of the Hohe and Niedere Tauern mountain ranges. The route of the 3.1 km long lift takes you from the mountain stations on the Grießenkareck over the ridges to the mountain station of Flachauwinkl-Kleinarl.
The new 10-seat gondola lift will be built and operated by Snow Space Salzburg Bergbahnen AG together with Shuttleberg GmbH & Co. KG.
