Austria’s largest ski system? No, it’s not St. Anton am Arlberg. With the new ski lift connecting Zell am See-Kaprun and Saalbach Hinterglemm the region actually steels the crown from the old St. Anton giant. The key is the new zellamseeXpress which has now been built. This is what the press release from Zell am See-Kaprun says on the matter:

“With the new zellamseeXpress the old downhill run used in the years between 1930 and 1980 will be reopened. Since the winter of 2014/15 the old downhill run has been open for ski tours down to Viehhofen. The new 10-seater monocable gondola runs from a corner station above Viehhofen up to the top station on the Salersbachköpfl at 1,920 metres (section 2). From there a 3.3 km long red piste lined with snow making machines leads you to the corner station. This way the guests on the Schmitten can check the other side.”

Once skiers has reached bottom of the piste new piste the connection to Glemmtal where you can enter the Skicircus Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn is secured via the efficient skibus system that is there. Put in short:

“We have Austria’s largest skiing area with a total of 270 km ski runs and 70 lifts virtually at their front  door – something which will make all winter sports athletes’ skiing hearts beat faster.”
