What's new at Skiliftkarussell Winterberg

New lift, snow cannons, GPS technology

Also for the 2019/20 season there is a lot going on at Skiliftkarussell Winterberg , the largest ski area north of the Alps. A new, modern chairlift connects the northern slope with the rest of the lift network, so that now all the lifts in the ski area are directly linked to each other in Winterberg . Modern snow guns and the use of GPS technology enable the lift operators to make optimum use of the snow as a resource and thus further improve the ecological balance.

New chairlift connects the Bremberg with the north slope
Skiliftkarussell Winterberg starts with a new lift. Unbuckle your skis and cross the street is a thing of the past. From the 2019/20 season, all lifts at Skiliftkarussell Winterberg will be connected. To make this possible, a car tunnel with piste crossing directly across the road will be created. This will serve winter sports enthusiasts to cross the road in the cold season and will also allow animals to safely change sides in the summer. As with many of the modern lifts, the new 6-seater chairlift is a detachable system, which means that the chairs are tensioned out of the rope at the two stations and move much more slowly. Thus the guests have it completely simply and comfortably into and from the elevator to get. Unique and completely new in Winterberg are the weather protection hoods, which protect the guests from the weather during the lift ride.

Snow management with modern snow cannons and GPS technology
The best slopes and lifts are of course not much use without snow. Therefore the oldest snow guns are replaced by more modern, quieter and above all more energy-saving devices. A total of over 370 such devices are in use at Skiliftkarussell Winterberg . In addition, the snow groomers in the ski area are being equipped with a snow depth measuring device. This is based on a GPS system and generates data with which the optimum amount of snow can be produced. In addition, this technology is used to push the snow to exactly those places where the snow depth is really low. In addition to improved piste quality and planning reliability, this system also ensures energy and water savings

There are also new things to discover off the slopes
A day's skiing is not just about being on the slopes. The ski huts at Skiliftkarussell invite you to enjoy delicious food and refreshing drinks. The rustic ski huts with their rustic appearance change into more and more modern restaurants without losing their charm. Also in this area some new buildings and renovations were made for this season. Directly at the Herrloh, a completely new building is being constructed, replacing the original "Herrloh-Hütte". Newly built is also "Möppis Hütte" - one of the classics in the ski area Winterberg. Après-Ski is also on the program here.

Long-term plans in Skiliftkarussell Winterberg
With the new road-crossing connection between the northern slope and Bremberg , a first step has been taken for the expansion plans of the future. Further lift facilities are to be created to connect the ski areas Neu-Astenberg and Alt-Astenberg to Skiliftkarussell . The enlargement of the lift network should help to increase the attractiveness of the villages. At the same time, the core town can be relieved, especially in the area of road traffic, as the villages lying ahead would be able to accommodate the first guests. In addition, the attractiveness of the ski lift carousel will be further enhanced by a significantly larger range of offers.
