Einsteigen bei den Helden der Nacht
Just moments after the last turnstiles at Hochfügen close for the day, an entire fleet of snow groomers makes its way up the steep slopes in order to make sure that the piste conditions are once again perfect the next day. We’ve all seen the “PistenBully” out and about, but getting to ride in one is a real adventure for any motoring enthusiast.
With a 500 hp engine and weighing in at an impressive nine tonnes, these monsters simply flatten the snow with an accuracy on the scale of millimetres. In the most sought-after passenger seat in the Alpine world, guests can find out everything they always wanted to know about snow grooming. “We also like to let our guests see behind the scenes at our ski resort and show them the effort that is required every day in order to guarantee perfect pistes,” says Managing Director Helmuth Grünbacher about the offer for skiers and engine enthusiasts.
