Austria's largest ski area has officially hit 280km of piste - 87% of them covered with snowmaking after newly cut runs added a couple of kilometres to the terrain tally.
The region had been very careful to measure its pistes lengths properly and called independent assessors last year when several other Austrian ski areas had been found to be exaggerating their total terrain by counting a wide run three times and other tricks exposed in a study by the German ski expert Christoph Schrahe. But the Skiwelt's independent assessor found they had measured their runs perfectly correctly.
The SkiWelt has invested 23 million euros in this coming winter season. Topping the cable car company's wish list is the new construction of the Aualm lift in the SkiWelt Scheffau.
The new detachable 8-seater chairlift will be one of the most advanced, most technically sophisticated and most comfortable lifts in the world. A of the latest generation, incorporating conveyor belt entry, heated seats, weather hoods, self-locking restraining bars with footrests and is particularly well designed for families and beginners. It is also one of the world's mopst expensive ever chairlifts at 10 million euros.
The 280km total has been reached thanks to the construction of a completely new slope, equipped with snowmaking facilities in the SkiWelt Brixen area down from the Holzalm at 1,440m, covering a distance of 1.2 kilometres to Gasthof Nieding (1,215m) where it joins the valley descent. Consequently, the Brixen ski slope range will be a "red run" richer, with even more scenic beauty and sporting excitement on offer.
