The operating company, Rauriser Hochalmbahnen, has joined forces with entrepreneurs, tourism operations and private investors, and is currently investing in a substantial optimization of the Rauris ski area. The modern Waldalm lift belonging to the next ropeway generation, D-Line, provides a huge quality boost to the Kreuzboden/Waldalm section by improving the connection between the two sides of the small ski area operated by Hochalmbahnen AG. The comfortable 10-passenger gondola lift replaces a surface lift and, once the final phase has been completed, will be able to carry up to 2,017 passengers an hour from the bottom station to the popular Waldalm ski trail. This also extends the trail by roughly half a kilometer, making it significantly more attractive. The new lift, which was subsidized by the Province of Salzburg, raised funding through the sale of individual cabins and shares. Construction of the Waldalm lift also increases value creation in the region. Furthermore, the ski area has benefited from another upgrade in the form of a new snowmaking installation, which has been in operation since the 2016/17 winter season and can provide snow for up to 95 percent of the ski trails.
