The Reischlbergbahn has been in operation in the Hochficht ski area in Upper Austria, in the border triangle of Austria, Germany and Czechia since the 2017/18 winter season. The ropeway construction project also resulted in many changes with a positive operative impact. In particular, the children taking part in ski lessons will benefit from the new intermediate station at the “Überlebenshütte”, which also houses a roofed magic carpet and the Kinderland kids park. From there, the two ropeway sections will be driven by a double-grooved drive sheave, with the two rope loops tensioned separately in the bottom and top stations. The Reischlbergbahn links two parts of the ski area, serving as an important connection. Overall, the ropeway replaces three surface lifts and a T-bar lift.
