Beginning in December 2018, Maiskogel Family Mountain will also offer guests added comfort and convenience, along with whole new dimensions and perspectives, in the form of a 10-passenger gondola known as the MK Maiskogel Lift.
Also under development at the valley terminal of the MK Maiskogel Lift, right in the heart of Kaprun, is the Kaprun-Center: a service hub with ticket offices, a ski depot with over 2,000 storage lockers and a modern sports shop.
HIGHLIGHTS: The direct K-onnection from Kaprun up to the Glacier.
This new connection essentially fuses the Maiskogel family ski area with the always-snowy glacier ski area to create a single compelling ski destination.
Total Convenience - Ski-in-Ski-Out
On foot from your hotel to the gondola. Now ride the new, ultra-modern MK and 3K lifts, first up the Maiskogel, then to the heart of the glacier ski area, where great snow conditions are 100% guaranteed. And when your winter sports are over for the day, hop back on board the lift with skis in tow for an enjoyable ride down to the valley, all the way back to the town center of Kaprun.
Maiskogel Family Mountain - more summer experiences
Thanks to the new MK Maiskogel Lift, Kaprun becomes more attractive than ever for families and their children. This lift will also run in summer, providing convenient access to the hiking paths and bike trails close to town.
Superlative Lift Axis
With the longest lift axis (a 12 km-long continuous string of pearls rising from 768 m to 3,029 m) as well as the greatest elevation gain (2,261 m) in the Eastern Alps, the K-onnection proudly boasts several superlatives.
The Kitzsteinhorn summit station is situated 3.029m above sea level. It is the highest point comfortably accessible for everyone in the county of Salzburg and a real shining star among the countless alpine options. Gipfelwelt 3000 allows you to savour the entire fascination, energy and grandeur of high alpine nature. From its position at the edge of the "Hohe Tauern National Park" the summit complex offers stunning insights into - and views of - the mystical Kitzsteinhorn and the Hohe Tauern mountains.
The Highlight of the Gipfelwelt 3000
Dive into the mystic inner world of the mountain. A 360 metre mine shaft goes through the Kitzsteinhorn peak with many exciting info-stations. At the end an impressive panorama-platform is waiting. You can relax and enjoy the magnificent peak and sublime peace of the Hohe Tauern National Park at eye level with the Grossglockner and the highest mountains in Austria.
