“The weather hadn´t been on our side for a long time but it has finally become colder recently and temperatures have gone down to minus ten degrees at night so we could start making snow at full blast. We are doing our best to open the most popular ski piste on Tuesday. Many ski clubs have shown interest in training on our glacier so we will try to comply with their wishes too. Snow stored in two storage sites from the previous season makes the preparation process easier, faster and we would like to continue with opening more pistes as soon as possible,” informed Max Gottfried, the resort general manager.
The new resort management left nothing to chance before the new season. “Analysing the resort before the purchase is one thing but experiencing how it really works is something else. Using our experience and know-how from other resorts that we manage, we have prepared for the winter season to guarantee the best possible results. All processes, as well as communication with local and regional partners were determined by this goal. Now the last thing we need is the weather on our side for as long as possible,” added Mr. Gottfried.
Skiing in the Mölltaler Gletscher resort is now available also to all Smart Season Pass holders. The basic version of the popular season ski pass is valid in the resorts operated by TMR in Slovakia, Poland and the Czech Republic but with a paid surcharge of EUR 49, skiing on the Mölltal glacier and the affiliated resort of Ankogel all season long can be added to the pass as an extra product. In addition, both Austrian resorts are planning various attractive offers for the members of the GOPASS loyalty programme which they will inform about via social media soon.
