SKI RESORT MERGER MAISKOGEL AND KITZSTEINHORN

K-ONNECTION – WE BRING TOGETHER WHAT BELONGS TOGETHER!

Do you want to get directly from Kaprun uphill to the Maiskogel and from there quickly and in comfort into the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier ski resort? This will be possible with the  K-ONNECTION from December 2019.

The Ski Resort Merger

The K-ONNECTION project will connect the Maiskogel family mountain with the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier ski resort. This means: Ski-In-Ski-Out and 100% snow-reliability from October to spring. The 3K Kaprun-Kitzsteinhorn-K-onnection will merge the Maiskogel and Kitzsteinhorn to one resort from December 2019. This doesn’t just mean a second access to the Kitzsteinhorn, the Maiskogel will also shine in new splendour. The new MK Maiskogel will lead to the Maiskogel family ski resort fast and in comfort from December 2018 already. The Kaprun Centre at the lower terminus of the MK Maiskogel, in the heart of Kaprun, will also open its gates from December 2018. The Kaprun Centre will include a service centre with cash desks, a ski depot and a modern hire & sports.

official start of construction for the K-onnection

The construction for the cable car connection between the Maiskogel and Kitzsteinhorn ski resorts started officially on 12 April 2018 already. The new MK Maiskogel cable car will start operation in the next winter season 2018/19 already. The new 10-seater single-cable car takes guests comfortably uphill in two sections. There will be a vast area for families, beginners and the ski schools at the intermediate terminus in future. The opening of the cable car for summer guests 2019 will also be a highlight. The Maiskogel will be accessible by cable car directly from Kaprun for the first time.
