Austria´s first glacial skiing area, pioneering spirit and courage
The Gletscherbahnen Kaprun stand for pioneering spirit, visionary thinking and special courage right from the beginning, thus enabling them to put an almost inconceivable project into operation: the development, in 1965, of the first Austrian glacial skiing area. Many more pioneering accomplishments and unique technological developments followed in the next decades. Exceptional measures were taken in the realm of ecology. Cable cars, lifts and snow cannons were constantly modernised, the skiing area attractions continuously adapted to the expectations of guests and, in 2010/11, the opening of the Gipfelwelt 3000, Salzburg´s highest tourist attraction.
