Generationen project Schlossalm NEW

The “Generational Project Schlossalm NEW” foresees construction of a single-cable gondola lift (each cabin with capacity for up to 10 passengers), running in 2 sections to the top of the Schlossalm. The new multifunction valley station – which is being relocated to the far side of the main road – will provide stress-free access to the ski area. In future, it will no longer be necessary to change lifts during the ride up the mountain. Passenger capacity will double from 1400 to 3000 people per hour. [more information]
