The Bergbahnen Wilder Kaiser - Brixental cable car company points out that according to guidelines, ski touring is only allowed during normal ski operating hours.

Outside these operating hours, the slopes are groomed with winch piste-grooming equipment. These cables can be extended up to 1,000 m in length. Caution: When a snow groomer tightens its cable, the cable may swing up to 40 m to the left or right. This is extremely dangerous and even life threatening.

For their own safety and the safety of snow groomer drivers, ski tourers are reminded not to underestimate the risk of touring outside the normal lift operating hours.

Access at your own risk without exception. The mountain railway assumes no liability!

We ask for your understanding as safety is of the utmost priority.
