The SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser – Brixental ski area in Tyrol has announced the closure of its lift system on 07 March 2021 after 70 days of operation in the winter season.
Perfect conditions, enthusiastic skiers, snowboarders and tobogganers and yet not a single day of SkiWelt operation was economically positive, according to the ski area management.
Planned investments such as the new Hexenwasserbahn in SkiWelt Söll or the Salvistabahn in SkiWelt Itter were carried out despite the pandemic.
However the SkiWelt management never thought that there would be no prospect of opening even in March. The provincial regulation with the requirement for a negative COVID test for skiers and snowboarders was then the final straw.
“In this context, we would like to thank all skiers in particular, they always adhered to the regulations and also always supported all measures.”
However there were many days in the shortened season when there were more staff than visitors in the ski area. The SkiWelt offered 120 kilometres of pistes including the ski area connections during the week and over 150km at the weekends.
However, it is possible that parts of the SkiWelt will be reopened for special runs or for weekend operations. Up-to-date information will be published at short notice.
