In addition to Tux, only a Lift now runs on the Dachstein glacier, the trail with its height but primarily serves the long-run clientele.
"Safe on the mountain" so Hintertux the concept is overwritten, it keeps the ski in Corona-times feasible. The three Shuttle cars that it goes in stages of 1500 to 3200 meters, disinfection stations were set up, signs to remember the two main commandments: "by far you're the Best!"
