For even greater quality, comfort and multiple-award-winning skiing enjoyment, the Wildkogel lift company is building the new 10-passenger gondola lift known as the “Ganzer X-press”. This investment of approximately 13 million euro guarantees the Wildkogel Arena will continue to be an attractive destination with a shining future.
The new “Ganzer X-press” 10-passenger gondola lift runs from the Ganzer Grundalpe to the top of the Pfeifferköpfl, crossing the line of the existing Pfeifferköpfl 6-seater chairlift and requiring construction of a new mountain station some 60 meters west of the existing mountain station of the Pfeifferköpfl lift. This will make any waiting times for the Pfeifferköpfl lift a thing of the past, allowing skiers to get even more enjoyment out of their day of skiing. Construction work is already going at full speed, with the new state-of-the-art gondola lift set to go into operation right in time for the start of winter season 2017/18.
The project will result in the creation of some 2.5 km of new pistes, which will also be equipped with snowmaking capability. Clearly, this will make for even more reliable snow conditions and guarantee the multiple-award-winning quality of our pistes that we have become accustomed to. In future, the Wildkogel Arena will be able to offer guests a grand total of 64 km of beautifully groomed pistes. But it isn’t only conventional skiers who will benefit from the quality improvements: The opportunities for freeridersand variant skiers in the Wildkogel Arena will grow significantly as well. The new lift will serve as the gateway to an attractive and variety-packed area for variant fans covering more than 15 hectares – an Eldorado, in other words, for freeriders.
