Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Been going to St Anton every year for sometime. But probably going to leave it off for next year.

Such a reputation for off-piste.... but every day it's either freezing cold boot packs where you can't feel your hands while you tie skis to backpack, or disgustingly sweaty boot packs. Then try to enjoy a few turns with your legs still shaky with tiredness. Followed by unending poling sidesteping and /or cat-tracking to get back to mai road. I mean, a lot of work for few turns at top

@stanton, I know the lift had to be replaced as it was getting quite old but I am a little sad to see it go. The low level journey over the upper slopes of the Schindlerspitze was interesting but the highlight was always the moment coming over the ridge, looking beneath your feet to see a very long drop down one of the Schindler couloirs, the safety bar never seemed to be very substantial. The trip inside a gondola will never be quite the same.

@stanton, agreed, any idea why they went for a gondola over a high speed chair with a bubble?

@SteveKirby, one of the reasons is the new lift will have a 'midstation' where the current topstation is (on Schindlerspitze), after that it wil decent a bit towards the top of the Valluga tow lift, where the new endstation comes.
They are doing this to relieve the narrow piste from Schindlerspitze. A six or eight bubble on top of Schindlerspitze would simply be impossible, because of this piste, but also because of frequent high winds up there.

Rumour has it that the planned new Madlochbahn will have a similar set-up. But it will not come before 2020/21

@Langerzug,

Yes Madlochbahn has been re-thought .
Im hearing Madlochbahn & Zugerbergbahn will be Gondola'ised at the same time....

Truly Shocking ..

Oh please, not so tendentious. At Zugerberg a gondola is quite logical, and across the Alps gondolas are completely normal already for ages in similar situations. It would also be attractive for non-skiers to come up the mountain from Zug.

By the way, another rumour is that an additional gondola is planned from Zug up to Madloch...

Makes sense I suppose....

@Langerzug, Zug (chair replacement) Gondola is very very contentious as it requires hundreds of trees to be cut down...

The UVP are already onto this!!

Pffff, a six or eight-bubble would take more trees...
Once upon a time the whole area between Lech and Warth was covered with trees. Probably as long ago as 1500 AD...

As I understand it the new Schindler lift will be similar to the Trittkopfbahn, not all the gondolas will go all the way to the top some will stop at the "middle" station ie the existing top station. I would guess most folk will want to go on to the new station as that will give easier access to the Valgefahr piste. Access to Schindlerkar should be possible from both places.

@stanton, Gondolas are more pleasant when it is -20 degrees and blowing a gale, the Schindlergratbahn was best avoided on such days (assuming it was open).

Shame to see the Schindler chair going, I used to love sitting on there on a sunny day and being up close with the nature, same with the old Albona II. I'm personally not a big fan of gondolas but for speed of getting people up high I can see the attraction.

yes I know ..

Do not under estimate he power of the UVP...you know that anyway..

Lech Zurs has enough resources to build a Cable Car or a Tunnel/Funicular both option would not require Tree Felling anywhere near what is needed for the proposed.
