ALPINE TOURING FEE FOR PARKING SPACE AND USE OF GROOMED SLOPES:
Alpine touring guests pay a fee for using the groomed pistes and parking lot. You get tickets at Almenwelt Lofer valley station (season pass and day ticket) and at parking lot P3 (new this winter: self-service ticket automat, only day tickets):
Season pass: Euro 75,00
Daily ticket: Euro 9,00
Valid on operating days, 8:30am - 5pm!
If you don't buy a ticket for ski touring (9 EUR per day/person) you will pay 15 EUR if stopped and checked!
Attention: Slopes closed from 5pm to 8:30am!
BEST ADVICE FOR OUR ALPINE TOURING GUESTS:
Use the outmost right edge of the slope for your tour and walk consecutively in a row and NEVER side by side, especially on narrow parts of the pistes.
Avoid a tour between 2pm and 4pm! On the partly quite narrow pistes it's very dangerous for uphill walkers to collide with downhill skiers during this very busy time of day.
Attention: Pistes are closed daily from 5pm - 8:30am! Be aware that 7 ski slopes, due to the steepness, are being groomed by using ropes. This is extremely dangerous because of partly non-visible ropes at night. The affected pistes are closed during grooming and are made visible through rotating flashing lights.
Take advantage of beautiful alternative routes, sufficient snow level provided, instead of the groomed ski-pistes: Bürgerberg - Bräugföllalm, Sodervoken - Schwarzeck oder Unkenberg - Schwarzeck - see map above!
Almenwelt Lofer is trying it's best to find a fair and good basis, suitable for both, alpine touring guests and ski-lift operator. Proper attitude helps to reduce any possible dangers and problems to a minimum.
