New modern 8seater Chairlift Senderexpress

PLANNED FOR WINTER 2019/20:

We are in the middle of planning the exchange of the old 4seater chairlift "Schönbühel" into a new state-of-the-art 8seater chairlift "Senderexpress", planned opening in Winter 2019-20! It will be the new Doppelmayr generation - D-LINE with bubbles, seat heating, and liftable conveyor belt. The valleystation will be located 60 meter further down and mountain station will be at the same place as before at the peak of Schönbühel at 1622 meter. The main run will be broader and a further run at the bottom, leading to the valley station is also planned.

Technical data:
Length: 1200 meter
Capacity: 3400 P/h (now 1800 P/h)
Altitude difference: 290 Meter
Speed: 5,0 m/sec.

 

New large water reservoir 

Enough snow and well groomed slopes provide the best conditions for a great ski holiday. Almenwelt Lofer has built one of the largest water reservoirs in Salzburg with a capacity of 135.000 m³ for winter 2014/15, located near the mountain station of the 4-seater chairlift Schönbühel. This means 3 times as much water available for artificial snowmaking for Almenwelt Lofer in the future.

The „Almen 8er Schwarzeck“ is top!

After realization of the last big project, the new cable car Almbahn I in 2011/12, our ski resort expanded again in the season 2012/13 – with a new and modern 8-seater chairlift and investments into an artificial snow system. The “Almen 8er Schwarzeck” is the world’s first childproof 8-seater chairlift with weather protections hoods, heated seats and foot rests.

The most modern 8-seater chairlift is designed especially for families with children. 100% secure transportation can be assured to our skiers due to the security rail. The rail closes automatically after entry at the valley-station and re-opens only shortly before getting off at the mountain station, making falling off the lift during the ride impossible.

The additional capacity of the new lift increased to 2.400 people per hour, which reduces waiting time in Almenwelt to a minimum, even on highly frequented days. Furthermore it opens up to additional and especially wide downhill slopes. Besides the new and wider range of slopes, the expansion offers a stunning and breath taking 360°panoramic view from the mountain station of the chairlift at an altitude of 1565m. This panoramic view is spectacular, you can see the Kitzbühler Horn, the Chiemsee, the Berchtesgadner alps, the Leoganger and Loferer Steinberge as well as the city of Salzburg.

Facts of „Almen 8er Schwarzeck“:
// childproof security rail
// weather protection hoods
// heated seats and foot rests
// length: 950 meter
// vertical height: 210 meter 
// capacity: 2.400 p/hr at present
// final stage: 3.200 p/hr

Other important innovations!

New 140m „magic carpet“: 
One of the longest covered conveyer belts in the alps (called „magic carpet“) has been developed in winter 2012/13. This conveyer belt is perfect for children and beginners. For the first time, the belt has been equipped with an exit in the middle (this way, beginners can exit before entering the steeper part). It guarantees a wind and weather protected transport and replaces 3 old drag lifts.

Photovoltaics system:
 The south side of the „Almen 8er Schwarzeck“ valley-station has been rebuilt into an environmental-friendly solar panel system. This system, area of 240 m², produces enough electricity to enable operation of various T-bar lifts in Almenwelt Lofer.

Free Wireless LAN:
 Let’s get online! At 6 highly frequented areas, wireless LAN hotspots have been installed: Valley- and mountain station Almbahn I, valley- and mountain station Almbahn II, Family Express, 4er Schönbühelbahn mountain station as well as mountain station of Almen 8er Schwarzeck.
