The innovative App, with its three categories lifts, huts and attractions offers quick access to the desired theme, leads to more detailed descriptions, and allows you to enter intermediate destinations.
ARRIVE SAFELY AT YOUR DESTINATION
For example, suppose you are standing on a piste in the Skicircus and want to cross the Schmittenhöhe to the Kitzsteinhorn. In that case, the app shows you the way including downhill runs, lifts, and any bus connections. The app also suggests different levels of difficulty for the desired route - in each case with a time indication. This way, the descent can be chosen individually according to your own ability. Then press start and off you go. Directions are given via voice message over the headphones during the journey, or you can stop and check the situation on your smartphone at your leisure. The app also calculates closed lift connections into the navigation system. It informs you of these closures by means of a push message. In combination with the new piste guidance system in the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, which was introduced last winter season, this enables easy, fast, and safe progress in the ski area - especially for children and young people.

Ski Connection from Bernkogel (Piste 146) to A1 + A2 Schattberg X-Press
Good news for all those who are not eager to carry their skis or snowboards and much rather ride all the way down to the valley lift station. The new ski connection from Bernkogel (slope 146) to the A1+A2 Schattberg X-press brings great extra comfort for all winter sport lovers. DI Walter Steiner, Operations Director at the Saalbacher Bergbahnen, explains: “The idea for this connection has been on our minds for some time. It is no longer up to date to shoulder your skis and carry them from the Bernkogel to Schattberg. The ski track is 6 to 10 meters wide, runs through a 25 meter under passage and over a total length of 300 meters from slope 146, just above the G1 Bernkogel lift valley station, straight to the parking area of the A1+A2 Schattberg X-press. The preparation of this project already began in September 2019 with complex slope stabilization work and the construction of the under passage. During the process, of course, we also planned the technical option of artificial snow production on the ski track.”
In summer 2020, we started a two-year construction project in Hinterglemm to extend our snow guarantee. The new Rosswald reservoir with a cubic capacity of about 230,000 m³ is located right at the multifunctional path between Rosswaldhütte and Wieseralm. It multiplies the snow output of the Filzen reservoir at the Reiterkogel, which we used prior for this area. Sepp Schwabl, Operations Director at the Hinterglemmer Bergbahnen, states: “From 2021/22, the reservoir which we are currently building will supply the ski area between Rosswald and Reiterkogel. We have already constructed the pump station and carried out earthwork operations in summer 2020. With the extensive renaturation works, the reservoir will definitely also become a popular summer spot as it is beautifully embedded in the scenic surroundings of the Rosswald. It is also easily accessible. In summer 2020 and 2021, we will redirect the Kodok Mountain adventure path due to the construction work – but from summer 2022 the lake will be integrated in the theme path.”
