The Kitz 3S-Bahn
THE NEW DIMENSION TO THE SKI SAFARI IN KITZBÜHEL | KIRCHBERG.
Are you on the lookout for a new super cable car in Tirol? Then the Kitzbühel | Kirchberg ski area is exactly the right place for you. As the largest cable car company in Austria, we opened the most spectacular triple-cable lift in the world in December 2004. Since then, we’ve been offering winter sports enthusiasts from around the globe a quantum leap in terms of capacity and comfort in the Kitzbühel|Kirchberg ski area.
The Kitzbühel | Kirchberg ski area is the number one winter holiday destination for more than one million people a year. The 3S-Bahn made the vision held for decades of connecting the Hahnenkamm/Pengelstein and Jochberg/Resterhöhe ski areas by cable car into a reality.
Our tip for skiers:
TAKE THE 3S-BAHN OVER TO JOCHBERG AND ENJOY EVERYTHING THE AREA THERE HAS TO OFFER.
You simply have to see it; it’s beautiful beyond description. The 3S-Bahn is a spectacular triple-cable lift that went into operation in 2004 and connects the actual Kitzbühel area with Jochberg, and then extends on to Pass Thurn and Mittersill.
The 3S-Bahn is also a technical marvel that has led to a decisive improvement of the local infrastructure. The lift rises as high as 400 metres above the ground and extends across its 3.7-kilometer route with only one aerial lift pylon. In addition, the Jochberg area – with Wurzhöhe, Bärenbadkogel, Zweitausender and Resterhöhe – is home to several good ski huts where you’ll surely want to unwind and relax. One such hut is the “Bärenbadalm”, which is recommended by Ski Guide Austria.
4,200 skiers per hour
Our unique project created the “main artery” of the entire Kitzbühel|Kirchberg ski area. This cable car link fulfilled the long-term aim of merging the wider ski area and making it possible for skiers to explore the Ski Safari in both directions.
The 24 cabins, accommodating up to 30 people, are guided by two carrier cables as if they are on rails and pulled by a traction cable. We are able to transport the impressive number of 4,200 winter sports enthusiasts an hour over the Saukaser Valley.
