New Lifts Coming Along!

The new link from Hintermoos to Hinterthal is well on it's way. This week they knocked down the little house next to the lift to make room for the new base station:


In Hinterthal the old base station has gone and the new one is coming along:


Tom from the Steinbock is also building a huge new  restaurant at the top of the Hochmais!
