Then it’s off to the Griessenkareck and on the G-Link cable car, with impressive views towards the Hohe and Niedere Tauern ranges and a ground clearance of up to 232 m, on to the Grafenberg in Wagrain. On the Giant Slalom timed race run beneath the Grafenberg cable car Maier leaves us in no doubt, that he can still master giant slalom turns more than perfectly even ten years after ending his career. A further highlight of the tour waits on the Sonntagskogel, the connecting mountain between Wagrain and St. Johann. Here the tour participants will be impressed by the comfort of the new 8-seater Sonntagkogel 2 chairlift, the world’s first chairlift with integrated heating in the seat back rests.
Afterwards, during lunch at the Kogelalm, Maier implied that skiing is still dear to his heart and he can quite often be spotted in the Snow Space Salzburg region. “Well, I’ll need to take care of my new route and do regular check-up runs“, Maier jokes with the participating bloggers and journalists.
By the way: the tour can be undertaken in one day, a balanced mix of a few black and lots of red and blue slopes makes the tour an exciting experience for experienced skiers and pleasure-skiers alike. Those interested, can take part in the Snow Space Salzburg Challenge along the Hermann Maier Tour and win valuable prices, such as three day ski passes per month and as a main prize a season ski pass for the winter 2019/20 season.
