The ski area of See in tyrol
Everything NEW in the family skiing area See
The family skiing area See is making accessible hitherto undiscovered terrain with its new 8-seat gondola lift and also upgrading its gastronomic options with a new SkyBar and an additional restaurant.
2,100 metres cable car, 25 hectares or 8 kilometres of pistes more – those are the facts. A completely new dimension when it comes to fun in the snow – that's the reality. With a new 8-seat gondola lift, the See cable cars in Paznaun are expanding their domain, not only for piste freaks but also by opening up completely new perspectives to deep powder snow and off-piste skiers. Thanks to the Versingbahn cable car, the family skiing area will be gaining one more top-class attraction as of 18 December.
Additional piste mileage, new SkyBar and mattress dorm at 2,256 m
Until now, the Ascherhüttenkessel in direction of "Versingalm" was accessible only via one downhill run. The Versingbahn cable car is changing that permanently: An additional eight kilometres of red, medium-difficult ski runs and ski routes are developed. To this come unique deep powder snow slopes below the Rotpleiskopf (2,936 metres). An area open only to ski tourers until now. In the family skiing area See, with its large practice area at 1,850 metres, ambitious skiers and freeriders come by their dream powder. The until now remotely located "Ascher Hütte" (2,256 metres) becomes part of the ski area. Instead of his winter room for self-caterers, landlord Daniel Schütz will be opening his 40 bunks in the mattress dorm on 19 December and is expecting a "huge rush". His restaurant with 60 seats as well as the new umbrella bar will also be open for winter business for the first time. Thanks to a new kitchen and new electricity supply, he will serve guest treats such as Paznaun roast pork or Paznaun Graukassuppe (grey cheese soup). And that with table service, something rarely found in classic ski huts. A special highlight will be the new viewing platform with SkyBar in glass-diamond design next to the Gratli Restaurant at 2,220 m.
Sustainable upgrading of infrastructure
The Versingbahn cable car, 2,100 metres long and with an altitude difference of 500 metres, is the longest and most powerful cable car in the See skiing area. The revolving lift with its 8-seat gondolas carries 1,500 people per hour up to the upper terminus, with a speed of six metres per second. In then planning phase, the lift operators paid special attention to ecology: The all-over artificial snowmaking for all downhill runs, made possible by energy from the on-site hydroelectric power station, guarantees skiing fun until after Easter.
