Winter sports: Skiing is becoming ten percent more expensive on average

In the coming winter, skiing in ski areas on both sides of the Bavarian-Austrian border will be around ten percent more expensive on average.

Apart from that, the operators are preparing cost-cutting measures intended to mitigate the increase in energy costs. This ranges from shorter snow-making times and reduced seat heating to no night skiing with floodlights, as six ski areas reported on request.

In Garmisch-Partenkirchen, for example, the price of a day ski pass for adults will rise from 50 to 55 euros compared to last season, and there will be an additional 2 euros each at Christmas and during the carnival holidays. The situation is very similar in the Christlum am Achensee ski area in Tyrol, which is popular with Upper Bavarian skiers: an adult ticket should cost 55 instead of 50 euros, according to managing director Nina Kofler.

Ticket prices have been adjusted

At the Bergbahnen Oberstdorf Kleinwalsertal - the German-Austrian merger of six areas in the Allgäu and Vorarlberg - the day ski pass is also 5 euros or almost ten percent more expensive, the new price is 57.50 euros. "That's the industry average," says Marketing Manager Jörn Homburg.

In fact: This also applies to Kitzbühel and its neighboring ski areas in Kirchberg and Mittersill: "The ticket prices have been adjusted between nine and ten percent compared to the previous year, due to the high energy costs," says a spokeswoman for the "KitzSki" association.
