An external safety organization is responsible for compliance with the piste regulations on the Planai and Hochwurzen.

Should an cabin fun party last a little longer than normal, the cabin hosts on the Planai will be glad to organize bus transfers from 18.30 onwards at very reasonable rates!

Piste preparation

Real-time preparations ensure piste quality

The Planai-Hochwurzen-Bahnen have made it their duty to ensure and improve the highest possible levels of safety and quality during winter operations.

Because of this piste equipment and/or snow applications may also be in use during ski operating hours.
