Let’s go to Wagrain and onto the Flying Mozart, because at the middle station of the 10-seater cable car, there is a great new highlight for keen young bikers and all those who wanting to become just that.
The woom bike area in Snow Space Salzburg offers action and adventure well into autumn. Every Thursday to Sunday, during the opening hours of the Flying Mozart gondola, the new bike area opens its doors to young bikers. With the wide practice area covering almost 6,000 m², mountain sports activities in the region have been greatly expanded. In cooperation with the Austrian children’s bike manufacturer woom, the trails and obstacles have been perfectly designed to meet the needs and abilities of children aged 2 to 14. This means that even the smallest talents can be taught the first basics of cycling on a running bike. The somewhat older bikers can already gain their first bike park and downhill experience in the practice area.
The 10-seater cable car takes us up to the middle station. Shortly before you get off, a friendly voice draws your attention to the new bike course – the anticipation builds. When we arrive at the woom bike area, we first go to the rental station to find the right woom bike. The rental of the bikes and the protective equipment, consisting of helmet, elbow, and knee pads, is already included in the ticket price. All that is needed for the rental is the signature of an accompanying person and a photo ID.
However, if you want to try out the woom bike area at Snow Space Salzburg with your own bike, you can easily transport it on the Flying Mozart cable car and set off directly on the trails.
And that’s how fast it starts! Off you go on your first runs through the bike area. The various trails and obstacles are set up at different levels of difficulty. On the “Toddler Track”, the little ones can already show their talent on the running bike or the children’s bike and strengthen their skills before moving on to the “My First Tables” or the “My First Drops”. Here they can also learn and consolidate their first jumping techniques.
For those who are already a little more confident on their bike, it’s off to the “Green Flow Trail” with a longitudinal gradient of around 5%, slight bumps and steep bends, or even to the “Blue Flow Trail”, where a longitudinal gradient of up to 8%, bumps and steep bends with rollers and rollable jumps await.
Accompanying persons and the important breaks between the individual bike adventures are also catered for! In the “Chill Area” on the roof of the Flying Mozart middle station, bikers can keep a close eye on each other. Seating and a food truck also provide the necessary refreshments for the next round on the trails.
