Do you know what is behind the name "3K K-onnection"? This is the cable car connection Kaprun - Maiskogel - Kitzsteinhorn: It makes it possible to travel from the village of Kaprun via the Maiskogel directly to the Kitzsteinhorn glacier.
For many generations, people in Zell am See-Kaprun have dreamed of connecting the Maiskogel with the Kitzsteinhorn. With the opening of the 3K K-onnection in the 2019/2020 winter season, this dream has come true: For the first time, the centre of Kaprun at 768 metres above sea level is now connected with the snow-reliable Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski resort at 3,029 metres via the family mountain Maiskogel, thus creating unity. The newly created cable car axis consisting of six cable cars is twelve kilometres long and, with 2,261 metres, overcomes the greatest difference in altitude in the Eastern Alps. You can master this difference in altitude effortlessly with the cable car and enjoy spectacular panoramic views at the same time.
