After 50 years, last year Gastein retired its nostalgic Schlossalm funicular. Just as it had to clear the way for the modern and ultra-cool Schlossalmbahn, at Sound & Snow 2019/20 there will definitely be no room for music of yesteryear. Bonez MC & RAF Camora are guaranteed to bring a high-powered performance to the forecourt of the Schlossalmbahn on 14.12.2019 and turn the valley station into a party zone that will really be rocking.
The two rappers will be swapping their “Plastic Palm Trees”, which was the name of their hit album, for a couple of pairs of skis. Actually, for RAF Camora this is basically a home gig since he grew up in Austria. Bonez MC & RAF Camora concerts are regularly sold out, while the Schlossalmbahn is also used to dealing with big audiences: The new gondola lift can transport as many as 3000 people every hour. And while the Schlossalmbahn carries guests 1150 vertical meters up the mountain, the rappers will be taking the atmosphere sky-high as well.
A perfect synergy for the Sound & Snow Festival in Gastein 2019/20. Or to put it in RAF Camora’s own words: “Our team are all winners”. So, true to the saying “everything that goes around comes around, except an opportunity”, snap up your tickets now!
Lineup details as well as ticket prices can be found at Sound & Snow Gastein.
Style is a question of taste. Or is it the other way around? In that regard, Gasteiner Bergbahnen came up with some truly remarkable ideas and commissioned the Salzburg architectural firm of Innerhofer oder Innerhofer to create a spectacular valley-, mid- and mountain station ensemble out of exposed concrete and aluminum composite panels. Modern, and done right! In 2018, the old funicular on the Schlossalm was replaced by a mono-cable 10-person cabin lift. This saves skiers having to transfer at the Kitzstein mid-station, adding greater convenience to their holiday experience. But that’s not the only advantage to these heated bright-orange cabins.
The time factor also plays a significant role: It used to cost skiers a lot of time and patience to make their way from the valley at 850 m up to the snow-covered mountains at roughly 2000 m. But since the opening of the new Schlossalmbahn, that time has been reduced to just 10 minutes. The hub and crux of this modern transportation experience: the new valley and mountain stations. And they definitely have a lot speaking for them: In addition to the lift station itself, guests also find a sports shop, ski school, ski rentals and a restaurant inside the valley terminal. Whereas passengers used to have to walk through an underpass below the main road in order to reach the funicular, the new valley station lies right next to the redesigned and restructured grounds of the car park. Making wobbly adventures in ski boots a thing of the past – meaning that all winter sports fans can now look forward to absolutely stress-free & relaxed days of skiing in Gastein, in Salzburger Land.
Also a new reservoir will ensure that powerful snow-making machines can be efficiently operated. 150.000 m3 more water capacity.
The architects of the new Schlossalmbahn came up with something really special for tech fans: At the gondola valley station, curious visitors can take a look at the inner workings of the mono-cable gondola lift. Afterwards, it’s time for that “non stop to the top” ride in the 10-passenger cabins of the new lift, though the new mid-station in the area of the Kitzsteinalm would definitely be worth a stop as well, since it is a true spatial wonder: In addition to dock for the lifts, a passenger station, workshop and a transformer room, it also provides clerical, personnel, technology, sanitary, logistics and storage space.
