New Salvistabahn

Wow! So much quality. The quality offensive in the SkiWelt Hopfgarten-Itter continues.

The Salvista gondola was built in Itter in 1986 - the first two years as a chair lift, and in 1989 a 4-seater gondola lift to the Kraftalm was finally built. In winter 2019/20 this lift will be in operation for the last season and in 2020/21 you will be able to access the Kleine Salve with an ultra-modern 10-seater gondola. The valley station of the new cable car is in the same place as the old station, the route to Kraftalm will also be the same. A middle station with boarding and alighting will be built at the Kraftalm, the new lift will be a total of 650 m longer.
In the building of the valley station, the complete infrastructure with sports shop, ski rental and ski depot will be completely renewed. The new Salvista gondola will start operating in time for the 2020/21 winter season.
The attractiveness of the new lift will be increased enormously by the extension of the lift, the creation of new slopes and also by the continuous summer operation in the future.
