News from Salzburg’s Ski Regions

Winter Highlights for 2020/2021 Season

Year after year Salzburg's winter sports regions invest in innovative services in order to offer guests varied and high-quality winter sports pleasure. Also in winter 2020/2021, new cable cars, lifts and ski slopes make for an even more comfortable skiing pleasure. New restaurants and hotels look forward to pampering their guests the best.

With its many large and small ski areas,  the SalzburgerLand is a true winter sports paradise. This is proven by the 2750 km of slopes on the Super Ski Card for the entire SalzburgerLand and beyond. The current ski pass prices for all ski areas in SalzburgerLand are available here.

Comfortable cable car and lift services in the ski areas

The new Panorama Link connecting lift in Snow Space Salzburg

In the Snow Space Salzburg ski area, the new “Panorama Link” connects the winter sports resorts of Flachau / Wagrain and Flachauwinkl / Kleinarl and thus creates one of the largest and most varied winter sports regions in Europe. The new 10-seater gondola cable car runs from the mountain stations on the Grießenkareck over the ridge to the Flachauwinkl-Kleinarl mountain station. Up to 2,400 people can be transported per hour, the journey time is 8 minutes and it offers a unique mountain panorama on the 3.2 km long route thanks to generous glass fronted gondolas.

Rebuild of the Zwölferhorn cable car in the Lake Wolfgang region

The new Zwölferhorn cable car in St. Gilgen on Lake Wolfgang will start operations at the end of October 2020. With the new eight-seater gondola, up to 655 people per hour can reach the Zwölferhorn. The 28 gondolas shine in yellow and red, just like with the old cable cars. The new gondolas offer pleasant comfort, a fantastic view and sufficient space. As a result, the Zwölferhorn is barrier-free and easily accessible for families. Both the mountain and valley stations are being renovated and a restaurant is being built on the mountain.

Alpin Card Navigator

The new “Alpin Card Navigator” orientation App enables a visual and audio-based navigation for the entire Alpin Card region and thus creates a better orientation in the three ski areas of Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See and Kitzsteinhorn Kaprun.

The hosts set new trends

Expansion of the award winning The Mesnerhaus restaurant with guest rooms

This award winning restaurant in Mauterndorf will be expanded to include guest rooms, so that in future guests will be able to spend the night directly on-site after a dinner.

A barrier-free connection leads guests directly to the Mesnerhaus.
