Site journal of the new Hornbahn 2000

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau, the starting signal is given by the Alpbacher Bergbahn for the new construction of the new chairlift in Alpbach.

After 23 years, 16,567 operating hours and 7,129,813 people transported, the Hornlift 2000 has reached the end of its service life. Originally, the projekt was planned to start in 2020. However, the corona-related break was used for careful planning and preparation of the investment.

Instead of the Hornlift 2000, a new detachable 6-seater chairlift with weather protection bonnet and seat heating is being built, which will take skiers to the highest point in the ski area in 3.45 minutes. Due to the increased transport capacity of the new chairlift, measures have already been taken in the summer of 2021 to make the area around the Hornbahn 2000 accessible to skiers of all levels.
