Following last week's heavy snowfall, Tyrolean ski resort Hochzeiger will open three of its slopes early. On November 23 and 24, skiers will have the opportunity to take advantage of the great weather conditions completely free of charge. Mountain lifts are giving away free tickets for the pre-opening this weekend.
Early start with perfect conditions
With 120 centimeters (47 inches) of snow on the mountain and 60 centimeters (24 inches) in the valley, it is no wonder the mountain lifts at Hochzeiger are looking to make use of the current weather conditions by opening early.
The Hochzeiger lift as well as the two chair lifts Rotmoos and Sechszeiger, and of course their slopes, will be open this weekend on November 23 and 24 (see trail map). The best part: Day passes are free this weekend - guests can simply claim their passes at the mountain lift station and start skiing! There's no need to worry about food either, with the Zeiger Restaurant also open for business.

Regular season to start November 29
Starting Friday, November 29, skiers will be able to enjoy the full range of runs in the Alpine ski area. At the start of the regular season, Hochzeiger will open all of its slopes, giving guests access to a total of 40 kilometers (25 miles) of groomed runs.
The date for the official opening remains unchanged. On December 7, German shooting star Wincent Weiss will perform on the open air stage at the Mittelstation, providing the highlight of the opening celebrations. Guests with a valid ski pass or pedestrian ticket have free access to the concert.
