Schlossalmbahn in Gastein
The new, modern, cool & unique ropeway in Gastein
The ski resort Schlossalm in Gastein in the Salzburger Land will make skiers‘ hearts beat faster in the coming winter season, for the new construction of the Schlossalmbahn excites not only with its original and at the same time refined architecture, but also cleverly combines modern design with cutting-edge technology.
Innovation at the foot of the Schlossalm
The new valley station, consisting of Béton brut and aluminium composite panels, combined with wide glass surfaces and refined with orange accents, is not only an optical highlight. The modern, multi-functional building promises sports fun and leisure in a totally new dimension, thanks to the concept of short ways. No matter if you come from the bus terminal, the parking lot or the new parking garage, the platform level of the valley station will be easily reached via escalators. And winter sportsmen coming from the slope will directly reach the mezzanine floor of the valley station over the new viaduct crossing the main road. Via the escalator they will get to the gondola which will take them right into the ski paradise - perfect for your winter holidays in Bad Hofgastein.
Ascent without changing. Skiing with comfort
The gondolas of the new cable car can hold 10 persons each, and you will get “non stop to the top”. Even though the middle station in the area of the Kitzsteinalm would definitely be worth a stop. After all, it is a true space miracle and offers not only a cable car hall, a gondola depot, a garage and a transformer room, but also space for offices, staff rooms, utility rooms, sanitary rooms, logistics and storage rooms. On the top, near the Kleine Scharte, the two-storey top station is located which will lead you to three different slopes with 1,200 metres of altitude each.
Around the multifunctional station building
Not only the building of the valley station with an adjacent parking garage with three floors, a sports shop, a ski school and ski rental, as well as a spacious ski depot and bistro is new and will offer the ideal conditions for your winter holidays in Bad Hofgastein. Also, the position of the building was changed. It was relocated to the other side of the main road to enable a comfortable and stress-free access to the ski region. Also the new bus terminal is close by so that winter sportsmen can get off the bus right in front of the valley station. But what’s more, the transport capacity of the cable car was increased from 1,400 persons per hour to 3,000 and therefore long waiting times are a thing of the past.
One concept and one ski region for your modern, cool and unique winter holidays in Bad Hofgastein.
