When does the winter start?
von Gast Autor
Winter has not yet started at the Schmittenhöhe, but what about the Kitzsteinhorn?
WE CAN'T WAIT ANY LONGER. What follows after the "summer of the century?" - exactly, the "winter of the century." No question, this winter will be amazing. But, when does it start? Last week we went to the Schmittenhöhe and checked out the conditions. It was'nt time yet!
At the Schmittenhöhe there is not yet much going on with skiing and snow. Actually there are great conditions for hiking and walking on the mountains around Fusch a.d. Glocknerstraße right now. Nice temperatures and pure sunshine. THIS WILL CHANGE SOON - on November 27th there is the official winterstart at the Schmittenhöhe and soon it will be time for skiing and winter season.
Many highlights during the winter
Funslope XXL, nightslope, fotospots, freeride-Viehofen and the Skitour to the Ronachkopf - the whole winter package is waiting for you. Skiers and snowboarders find exactly what they came for at the Schmitten. For winter hikers and cross country skiers there is a huge playground on 2.000 meters sealevel. Who travels with family and kids is well off. Schmidolin is waiting already and on the kidsslope you can show what you are up to.
On the wrong mountain
We went last week in order to show you nice slopes and snow-conditions. We should have gone to the Kitzsteinhorn glacier. There the skiing season started two weeks ago and there is much going on right now. Perfect snow and slopes are attractive to a huge variety of early-bird-skiers. This year the new cable car opened and with the glacier jet 3+4 the resort took a major step in terms of capacity and speed - new varieties, new lines and new dimensions.
Power & endurance on over 2.500 meters
There is also much workout at the Kitzsteinhorn. On the ski tours, Schneekönigin and Eisbrecher, which takes you from the Alpine-Center to the top of the resort, many ski tourers work out to get in shape for the long mountain-season. Same story - on the 3 km long and 2.900 meters high cross-country-track. The high elevation makes the workout and training super efficient.
As far as good - now we do know:
That the Schmittenhöhe is not yet ready for the winterstart. We also know, that there are great conditions at the Kitzsteinhorn. But what is going on there we do not know yet. THAT we will check out soon and will get back to you from the Kitzsteinhorn glacier with a report from the slopes, conditions and weather.
In the meantime the Hotel Lampenhäusl gets ready for winter too. The new collection of rental skis "rent your sport Lampenhäusl" is about to arrive. Now it is time for mounting bindings, checking safety, adjustments, we wax and we clean. Everything for you and for your perfect rental material during the winter season. Come to the hotel Lampenhäusl - "rent your sport & spend your holidays!".
The team of the Hotel Lampenhäusl wishes you a beautiful fall and have fun with getting ready for the winter season.
