Safety measures of the Bergbahn AG Kitzbühel
Safe from the car park to the slopes
To ensure the safety of guests and staff, KitzSki has put together a comprehensive package of measures. Placards, loudspeaker announcements and specially trained staff remind guests to keep their distance and to wear FFP2 protection – this is compulsory in the public areas, at the entrances and exits and in the cable cars. The gondolas are only used to half their permitted capacity. The gondolas are regularly disinfected with cold fogging and the cabins of the Horngipfelbahn with UV-C light. Around 35 sanitary facilities are available throughout the ski area. They are signposted accordingly, are located in the area of selected cable car facilities (valley or/and mountain station) or in mountain restaurants.
New 3S winter hiking trail, cross-country ski trails and piste ski tours
With the new 3S Winter Hiking Trail, KitzSki is responding to the trend that more and more people want to make active use of winter away from the slopes. “The new 3S winter hiking trail leads from the top station of the Wagstättbahn to the top station of the 3S lift on the Wurzhöhe,” explains Mag. Christian Wörister, CEO of Bergbahn Kitzbühel. The fact that such an investment is necessary for the economic success of the mountain railway is confirmed by Walter Astl, CEO of Bergbahn Kitzbühel. “The demand for alternative winter offers such as cross-country skiing and ski touring on the slopes is increasing. That is why it is important to create the appropriate infrastructure for our guests,” says Walter Astl.
For cross-country skiers, KitzSki has the high-altitude trails on the Kitzbüheler Horn and on the Resterkogel in its programme. There is also news for ski tourers this winter. KitzSki is participating with three routes in the Piste Ski Touring Initiative of the Province of Tyrol. The three KitzSki piste ski tours will be signposted separately. “On these routes, ski tourers can be sure that they are on approved trails,” says Mag. Christian Wörister.
