To meet the requirements, a snow making water storage system with a capacity of 107 000 m³ was created. In order to transport the water to the 70 tapping points of the snow making equipment, pressure pipes manufactured by Tiroler Rohre GmbH with varying sizes of DN 150 to DN 400 were laid. A total of 6500 m of ductile piping and once again as many running metres of air ducts were installed in this project.

In order to control and supply the snow making systems, Bergbahnen Werfenweng laid 60 000 m of power and control cables. After the successful completion of the construction works, guests will have access to the 10 different cable cars as well as the snow-covered slopes.
