For skitouring visitors we have a special offer:
Special service for tour-skiers till the end of the winter season: In case the ski run is not passable into the valley, the cable-car will bring all skiers and snowboarders (with a valid ticket for ascent), who only partly use the ski run, back to the valley.
Ski run Untersberg:
A 7,5 km long ski run, about 20 min. walking distance from the top station of the cable-car. The altitude difference is about 1400 m. During the skiing-season a mountain rescue team is stationed at the shelter Schweigmühl Alm - drinks are available. The lower steep area of the ski run can be avoided by following a forest road. The bus number 35 runs from Füstenbrunn to the valley station of the cable-car, additional busses according to demand. The ski run is mainly used by local winter sportsmen - it is ideal due to the immediate vicinity to the City of Salzburg. More and more tour skiers climb up the steep ski run from Fürstenbrunn. Every year the ski run is transformed into a green area (layer of humus and special alpine seeds) by the cable-car administration in order to prevent erosion.
