Winter highlight for 2015/16 on the Turracher Höhe: 6-seater chairlift in the Schafalm

Since December 2015, the new 6-seater chairlift in the Schafalm ensures great skiing pleasure on the Turracher Höhe!
In addition to the new and comfortable 6-seater chairlift, the Turracher Höhe is by a total of five runs richer. Further down the valley we head Turrach, an old mining village. The 6-seater chairlift connects directly to the Kornockgrat and therefore provides additional ski enjoyment. The renovation will be continued in spring 2016. In addition, there will be two red and three blue slopes – a real challenge for our skiers and snowboarders.
