    hey alkares, are we now on gondola station porn.
    here the old patscherkofel topstation vanished a couple of years ago.

    mcdee i see things also negative at the moment but building ski infrastructure is not the smartest thing todo right now.

    for now i will enjoy every ride i will take on this red unicorn. it feels like riding a volkswagen t1 bus.
    the rattling, the shaking, the leaning in the curve and the crazy downhill stairs when loading the cart.
    all unique and very special.

    the smile when i arrive at the parkinglot is unique too. when i look at the hotel and think! i am in a different country : )

    serving lizum only with the old parking lot quad and the top double chair. is to slow and not state of the art.

    it is not about this season.... thats just strategic talk. axams, götzens and grinzens can´t put 50mil on the table and there is no tourism anymore in this area.

    so if they cannot run 21/22, why bother this year.

    fröschl just counts money,
    same with glungezerbahn he owned from 1980 till 2010. he never invested anything there. thats how he runs things. he gave it back to the community for 1€ after running it for 30years.
    good points here.

    Don't have my funicular porn archives handy but here's Jamtal last week:

    i googled some stuff. cable car concessions run 40-60 years. so the axamer funicular permit could be extended, i guess. i have now clue about austrian cablerailways law. etc.
    the patscherkofelbahn counted lovely 89years until they broke it down. it was said the towers cannot be serviced anymore, because they were riveted.
    nobody discontinued the eiffel tower yet.
    thats the problem with the concrete mafia and the local government.
    they tell something is not working and it has to be replaced just for the sake of new building and making big contracts.


    peace and love

    This is scary. I went skiing on stubaier glacier today.
    when i checked the webcam at around 10 i was not even sure if the octochair (rotadl) is running.
    parking lot usage was appr 10%.... buhhh slopes were good until closing.

    when the vis was good in the afternoon i got stoked but clouds moved in quickly.

    with no tourists, it is scary, hard do imagine a winter like this.
    a lil bit of Orwell: the parkinglot announcement speaker will every 10 minutes transmit a message in in 4 languages something like: PLEASE USE A NOSE AND MOUTH COVERING AT ALL TIME AND KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE OF 1m

    so strange.

    the travel warning for tirol is a heavy hitter.

    Mask wearing was at about 50% today in Kaunertal... regardless of signs or messages given through the loudspeakers. Lifties don’t give a fuck what you do. No social distancing at all. It was the “normal” euro experience. No one gives a fuck. That was weird. Everything taken for granted. Going to be a touring season for sure.

    I'm kinda hoping everything gets locked down again in November so that resorts can open with lower numbers.

    My company have cut to the bone and I'm still not certain it will be enough....

    The flip side is that most of the restrictions in F or CH can be read as, "so skiing is ok then!"

    Lifts turned for the first time this weekend in Davos.

    Visibility sucked.
    Only two runs open.
    It rained up to like 2300m.
    I only did 4 runs because my Achilles started to hurt.
    And it was f-ing awesome to be back up a mountain on skis!!!!!!!!!

    Wasn’t super busy. Masks in gondola. Plain neck gaiter or scarf doesn’t cut it. Stopped at a mountain restaurant for a Huuskafi - near paranoia about cleanliness and keeping people far apart.

    Will be interesting to see how they handle things when it gets busy. But for now, the mountain felt like the safest place in Yurp.
