New as of winter 2018/19

This summer we invested a lot to make the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn even more exciting, comfortable and convenient.

 

10 EUB KOHLMAISBAHN

A modern 10-person gondola replaces the old Kohlmaisgipfelbahn.

 

Start of construction: Spring 2017
Completion: December 2018

Capacity: More than 3200 persons per hour

 

Interview with DI Walter Steiner – Operations Director of the Saalbach Lift Company and Site Manager of the Kohlmais Lift:

 

At the end of the winter season 2017/18, the fiery red coloured Kohlmais gondolas will be dismantled. Skiers will be able to admire the completed construction works, as the middle station was already built in the summer of 2017. The stages of the construction in progress:

The original gondolas that were erected in the year 1989 will give way in the summer of 2018, to a state-of-the-art 10-person monocable gondola lift. The new lift is identical to that of the Schönleiten lift – thus offering the ultimate comfort, efficiency and speed. Due to the fact, the new middle station of the Kohlmais lift is situated approximately 30 metres more to the west, enable initial construction works to begin in 2017. The new three-storey middle station is only missing the roof structure.

 

The final construction phase will be carried out during summer 2018 – what does that mean for our summer guests?
Following the demolition, assembly work will commence in May, and the Schönleiten lift will be operating in summer as a substitute for the Kohlmais lift. Incorporated in the new Kohlmais bottom station will be 100 underground parking spaces and apartments for personnel. The new building will be located at street level – enabling guests to access the ticket office easily from the Skiliftstraße. Due to extensive construction works, the Montelino’s Adventure Path will only be partially open this summer. The Milka Line will remain open and can be accessed via the trail leading from the Schönleiten. Further details regarding route modifications and roadblocks can be found on www.saalbach.com when construction works commence. We kindly ask our summer guests for their understanding! The opening of the new lift is scheduled for December 2018 and guests can look forward a faster ascent up the Kohlmais Mountain from the centre of Saalbach.

muldenbahn 8er

A modern 8 person chairlift with heating, bubbles and automatic bars will replace the old Asitzmuldenbahn 6 person chairlift.

 

Start of construction: May 2018
Completion: November 2018

Capacity: More than 3500 persons per hour

 

Interview with Kornel Grundner – CEO of the Leogang Lift Company:

 

The old 6 person chairlift was built in 2003 and lacked the required capacity. In 2018 it will be replaced by a modern 8 person chairlift which can bring 3500 people every hour from the Asitzmulde to the top of the kleine Asitz. Due to this investment accessing the Leogang area will be as convenient as never before, as queues belong to the past. The NEW chairlift is a modern D-Line model with bubble, heating and automatic bars and is the first 8 person Doppelmayr D-Line chairlift in the world.

 

Especially the automatic bar offers a huge relief for families and children as it increases safety. Additionally the bottom station got repositioned 55 metres and a better area for entering the new Muldenbahn 8er and the Sportbahn Asitzkogel 6er was created. Which also means safer crossing and skiing towards the bottom stations.
