What’s new in the Austrian Tirol?

The amazing Austrian Tirol is made up of over 80 ski resorts, including some of our top sellers, St Anton, Mayrhofen, Sölden and Lech. Skiers will be excited to know that there are plenty of new additions for 2019/20 winter season! There has been a heavy investment in to the ski-lift infrastructure and lots of new accommodations, increasing the choice of package holidays available in the Tirol.

New gondola and fun toboggan run in Sölden

The Rotkoglbahn lift in Hochsölden is being replaced with a new, modern 10-seater gondola, giving quicker and easier access to the nursery slopes in this area. The top station of this new gondola will move to the same altitude as the Giggijock restaurant, and the piste down (from the top) will be widened to improve the bottleneck.

A new 7km-long toboggan run will open from the Gaislachkogel mid station at 2174m, running down to Solden village at 1377m.
