Just in time for the summer season, Bergbahnen Hohsaas opened the Skills Park at Kreuzboden with three new trails and a Moving Carpet.
The company Borer Lift AG, which is part of Sunkidworld, supplied Bergbahnen Hohsaas with a Moving Carpet back in 2009, which serves as an ascent aid for skiers at Kreuzboden in winter. Since this year, this Moving Carpet has an additional function - it now also acts as a means of transport to bring bikers effortlessly back to the start of the trails.
Saas-Grund is the neighboring community of Saas-Fee. Saas-Fee is a well-known winter sports resort in the Swiss Alps. The community is not far from the Italian border and is often visited by hikers and climbers in the summer, as many four-thousand-meter peaks surround the town.
Mountain biking has also been a big topic in the Hohsaas area for many years. For this reason, the offer at Kreuzboden, which until now featured a Moving Carpet in winter and a lake, a playground and a restaurant in summer, has been expanded to include three skills trails.
The bike park is not only intended to introduce children to mountain biking, but also to offer adults the opportunity to overcome personal challenges and, if necessary, improve their technique on the bike.
