The Hochkönig Lifts are Nearing Completion

The Skifix Team

The early snow in August made everyone cast their gaze towards the mountains and catch a glimpse of the new lifts emerging from the hill sides. 

The three new chairs and 3.7 km long gondola cabin are starting to resemble real lifts rather than blocks of concrete in the mud. This season will be the first time that over 150 Kilometers of mountain slopes will be connected by fast and effective chairlifts turning the Hochkönig into area to rival any resort.

Hochkönig Connects the 4 Valleys, Over 150km linked!

At the end of our 2009/2010 season we got very excited; the rumours and talk of new lifts were finally happening! This year the entire Hochkönig region will be linked by brand new lifts.

The completion of a huge 3,6 km cabin lift will connect the ski slope between Hinterthal and Hintermoos this will totally remove the need to use a bus. This means that 150 km of connecting ski slopes along with exceptional snow conditions will await you this winter. 
 
At the valley station, a ski centre, parking area, shops and cash registers will be available to all those who ski or board through. 

New Lift Hintermoos

Furthermore, one of the region's major aims is to modernise and increase comfort levels and most importantly- child safety. This will be achieved with the new heated 6 seat chair lift which will replace the current Hochmais lifts in Hinterthal. This is great news for anyone who has experienced the old and slow two man lift on a very cold day.

 

The next stage is to build a new 1,7 km 6 seat chair lift to replace the Bürglalm T-bar lift in Dienten. Again to ensure child safety as well as the outstanding conditions on the slopes in Dienten that simply can't be matched.

New Lift Hinterthal

A modern ski centre with parking bays, sports shop with bistro, ski hire, ski depot, service and cash registers is also planned inside a new complex which will allow skiers and snowboarders to cross above the village over a 'snow bridge' eliminating the need to cross the road here.

Roll on winter I can't wait to use the new link lifts!2011/2012 Season

 

 

The Brand New Member of the Skifix team is........... Eddy Williams

Skifix's new partner, Eddy Williams, started skiing at the tender age of 6 with his family; instantly hooked he continued to go on more trips with school, friends and family. Sadly Eddy's hopes of a career as a pro-skier were dashed in his first season in Les Deux Alpes when he entered the British Championships and came second to last (the person in last had fallen over!).Having sped through 3 years at university Eddy jumped straight back onto the season train working in a variety of roles in Serre Chevalier, as well as Courchevel and most recently as a hotel manager in Les Deux Alpes.  With Eddy's invaluable knowledge of winter tourism, and "mad skills" we're sure he'll add to your Skifix holiday experience.

Eddy loves back country powder, but can also be found cranking it on the piste.  Outside of skiing Eddy enjoys long walks on the beach and 19th century Russian literature.

"Looking forward to meeting you in the 2011/12 winter season" sneak previews of Eddy at London Freeze festival. 

Construction of the Bürglalm lift in Dienten

New Lifts

Yes! followers of Skifix and lovers of the Hochkoenig, it has finally happened, The monster 'T-Bar' is no more!

From the center of Dienten village next year there will be a modern, fast detachable chairlift. Two new huge bridges that you can ski across will provide direct access to the slopes and lifts.

The new Bürglalm chair lift will also incorporate a large ski centre with parking bays, sports shop, bistro, ski hire, ski depot, service and ticket office. 

Since 2008, The Ski Amade and Hochkoenig companies have invested over 40 million Euros in the Ski region. Come and see the new developments you won't believe how far you can get in a day.

It's no surprise that the Hochkoenig has rapidly become one of Austria's leading ski resorts
