7 Million Super Chairlift For Saalbach (06-Sep-09)

Saalbach, Austria, September 6, 2009 - Saalbach is making one of the biggest ever investments

Saalbach is making one of the biggest ever investments in a chairlift this summer to upgrade the Hasenauerköpfl from a quad chair to a state of the art eight seater chairlift with pull down bubble weather-protection covers. The 7m Euro lift will also have heated seats.

The new lift is one of three the resort, one of Austria’s largest and most popular, is installing ahead of winter 2009-10. A further 5m Euros is being spent on a six-seater chairlift with orange panorama bubbles, heated seats and safety loops to replace the Turmlift.

Finally 1.4m Euros is being spent on upgrading the Almlift, formerly a T-bar, in linked Leogang, to a quad chair.

Saalbach is also making on-going investments in snowmaking which covers 90% of its 200km of slopes which are served by 55 modern cable-ways and lifts. The resort also boasts 10km of cross-country tracks, a carving funpark, half pipes, GS race courses, flood-lit slope, mogul runs and snow parks.
