Alpbach: Hornbahn Leitner Construction Update

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau, the starting signal for the new Hornbahn 2000 is given in the Alpbachtal by the Alpbacher Bergbahn.

After 23 years, 16,567 operating hours and 7,129,813 people transported, the Hornlift 2000 has had its day. The project was originally scheduled 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 a weather protection hood and heated seats will take skiers to the highest point in the ski area in 3.45 minutes. Due to the increased capacity of the new chairlift, measures were already taken in summer 2021 to make the area around the Hornbahn 2000 accessible to skiers of all ability levels.
