News and investments of the Nassfeld Mountain Railways for the 2019/20 season
By December 2019, Nassfeld Mountain Railways will have invested a total of € 9.6m in order to make the entire ski resort even more attractive for visitors.
Increase of mechanical snowmaking facilities
The main objective of the investments in the snowmaking infrastructure has been full snow-coverage of the main pistes by increasing, renewing and improving the mechanical snowmaking facilities within 5-6 days. For this, a new pond for snowmaking, holding 110,000 m³ of water, has been created, new pipes as well as taps, with adequate automation of the pump stations for increasing the capacity by an additional 300 litres of water per second, have been installed. Purchase of top-modern snowmaking facilities: 63 units (20 lances and 43 propeller machines) as well as three new state-of-the-art piste bullies, with cable winches and snow depth measuring instruments, guarantee even better piste conditions in the 2019/2020 winter season.
Improvement of the piste programme
By adapting the terrain, the area of various ski pistes at Nassfeld has been expanded, thus ensuring improvements for sporty skiers. The beginner area on the Tressdorfer Alm has also been expanded and a new 140 metres long conveyor for skiers has been installed.
Customer information and service infrastructure:
By upgrading the fibre optic technology, all processes – information, booking and payment processes – of the attended and unattended sales channels will be handled significantly faster in future.
To improve customer information, the digital info areas – TV Info Channel – have been expanded and are going to be optimised with the introduction of the mobile “My Nassfeld Pressegger See“ guest info app, which is scheduled for summer in 2020.
Attended sales/service centre
Conversion of the cash desk area at the lower terminus in Tröpolach
The sales counters, among other things, have been modernised by optimising and restructuring the cash desk area at the lower terminus of the Millennium Express in Tröpolach. This significantly increases the sales capacities especially during full winter operation and provides more comfort for staff.
Aim of the purchase of additional ticket machines for self-service as well as creating further facilities like “ski pass online ticketing“ is to make bookings by customers easier and faster.
Hit the piste!
Skiers and snowboarders visiting the Nassfeld ski area will find a wide range of blue, red and black slopes catering for all abilities. Thanks to the exceptional microclimate in the region, Nassfeld is blessed with plenty of snow during the winter months. And even if the weather gods are not smiling on this corner of Carinthia, almost all of the slopes have snowmaking facilities.

The most snow of any resort in Austria
Nassfeld dominated the snow-ranking of European ski resorts with this headline in winter 2013/2014 for many months. Reason for this were the region-typical Adriatic lows with high precipitation which unloaded their metres high "white splendour" in the Carnic Alps, thus impressively proving that Carinthia’s Nassfeld is the "snow-hole" of the Eastern Alps.
The annual average of snowfall at Nassfeld has been measured at 7-8 metres of snow every winter over the past few years. In addition, there is evidence of a plus on hours of sunshine (100 hours more than north of the Alps) – thanks to the special micro-climate!
