Does anyone know if the proposed lift back across to Zell am See from Saalbach is still going ahead in time for next season?
Thanks snowHead

You mean the bottom section being added to the Zell Am See Express lift, down to Viehhofen?
According to this list, yes

Also some serious investment going on in Kaprun. (Sorry the article is in German)

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

It was supposed to be happening this summer, but both the Saalbach and Zell am See websites are being surprisingly tight-lipped about it - not a mention. This tends to confirm the rumours that I heard last winter that the construction of the gondola might be delayed for a year to enable the contruction of a new reservoir and installation of snow cannons on piste 68, which will become the primary route for skiers wanting to travel from Saalbach and Leogang over to Zell. I'll be there during the mid-summer so will be able to make enquiries and see for myself. Having said all that, it does seem strange that neither of the websites even mentions it. There's been a lot of preparatory work going on in Viehhofen - diversion of the road and preparation of a new car park and site of the new lift station, and a big sign announcing the project.

@Tubaski, The Zell lift is marked as approved but uncertain for this coming summer whereas the upgrade of the Kohlmais lifts at SH are marked as under construction.
There is also a link to a camera at the proposed middle station so you can see the construction progress but that does not yet seem to be operational see http://viehhofen-mittelstation.live-panorama.com/

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.
