NEW: CROSSPARK REITERALM!
Exciting and spectacular – this is an international first – the Crosspark on Reiteralm. The new highlight of the four interlinked mountains will open to skiers on Reiteralm this winter.
Leading the project is the Reiteralm Bergbahnen ski lift company with their partner, the Unterkofler family, at the initiative of Willi Zechner.

Reiteralm, in the Schladming-Dachstein region, is a popular ski resort thanks to the world ski elite who train there, and now it has another attraction.
“Our goal as Reiteralm Bergbahnen is to make Reiteralm even more attractive to our visitors, and to represent ourselves as a cutting-edge ski resort. By implementing the Crosspark Reiteralm, we are contributing to this goal,” says managing director Berchthaller.
The Crosspark Reiteralm lies in the middle of the Reiteralm ski resort, close to the Preunegg Jet and Seppn Jet chairlift top stations.
The Crosspark Reiteralm has two tracks. One long, fun-filled line with lots of variety for the whole family, one of its highlights being the Alm Hut Jump at the end of the course. Fun and action are guaranteed for all skiing visitors.
There is also a World-Cup friendly, top-equipped cross-track open to top ski-cross athletes. At times, a less-intense version of this track, the chicken line, will be available to experienced skiers.
“Reiteralm ski resort’s new and unique training and race possibilities for ski-cross teams are the only ones of their kind worldwide. The lines are great for both ski-cross and boardercross. Everybody is very excited about this fantastic new attraction, whether for training or for international races,” states Willi Zechner, head coach of the Austrian ski-cross team.
“Our Crosspark is peppered with more elements and obstacles than a conventional fun slope. The track is longer, more innovative and exciting, and all our visitors will have great fun. What’s particularly interesting about the Crosspark Reiteralm is that all elements – the jumps, waves, or steep turns – have already been worked into the terrain. That means the slope-grooming team will be able to work much more efficiently and economically in this Crosspark than in a conventional one.
“We, the Reiteralm Bergbahnen, are very happy to have built, together with our partners, the Unterkofler family, a new absolute highlight in Schladming-Dachstein. This project is a global first,” adds managing director Berchthaller visibly proud.
