Eco-friendly ski resort 2018
According to the online ski resort test portal skiresort.de, "the environmental protection activities of SkiWelt are exemplary."
The SkiWelt has been taking measures since the 1990s. Starting with the 100% solar-powered Sonnenlift and the Jochbahn in Brixen which has a solar system installed until
for gentle snowmaking from 15 reservoir lakes with drinking quality, naturally filled with rainfall and snowmelt. Since 2017, a sophisticated GPS-snow measuring system has been providing more efficient and resource-saving snow management. All facilities are operated exclusively with 100% renewable energy (Tiroler Wasserkraft).
The heating of various facilities, such as buildings or chair lifts, also uses renewable energy and waste heat. Sustainability is boosted by free charging stations for electric cars at car parks in SkiWelt Brixen, Hopfgarten and Scheffau.
