The Rio Pusteria Ski and Holiday Area had a highly successful winter season in 2018/19 with the new 10-seater Ski Express gondola and the addition of the Wastl Huber piste and Gimmy Fun Ride to our slopes. We have continued to work hard in the lead up to the coming winter season and are looking forward to unveiling our new family piste, a blue slope on Mt. Gitschberg. Alongside a new children’s park by the Meransen valley station, which we are building in collaboration with the Gitschberg Ski School, this will make our family-friendly ski area even more inviting.

In line with our goal of investing in the future, the Rio Pusteria Ski and Holiday Area is continuing to focus on reliable snow coverage and quality management, so that your skiing holiday doesn’t have to be at the mercy of the snow gods! Snow production in Maranza can now be guaranteed thanks to the construction of the new Grabenkreuz Reservoir, with a capacity of around 82,000m3, along with two new pumping stations on Mt. Gitschberg. Alongside this, we are working towards fully automated snow production and have acquired a total of 55 new snow guns to cover both Mt. Gitschberg and Mt. Jochtal. Our investment budget for this winter runs to around 5.5 million Euros. All these innovations will be in place at the start of the 2019/2020 winter season and will play their part in giving you an unforgettable holiday in the Rio Pusteria Ski and Holiday Area. We look forward to welcoming you!
