The last days of the winter season are gradually drawing to a close and as the conditions are still good, I have put my skis on for the last time to enjoy some spring skiing. Spring has sprung in the lower part of the valley and it won’t be too long before buds are sprouting through the snow on the higher ground. I take a seat on the Sunliner chairlift for my last ascent up towards the summit.
At the top station I meet Operations Manager, Jakob Niederseer, who provides me with an overview of the last day. “It’s hard to believe that as of tomorrow all will be still and quiet here on the mountain… What happens when the last gondola and chairlift pull in to the top station this evening? Is it time for you to go on holiday?” I enquire, and Jakob Niederseer laughs. “No, the closing down process takes a little longer. It is not just that we press the ‘off’ button and go home. There is quite a bit more work that needs to be completed by our team”.
