Economic feasibility study modernization and expansion Mitterdorf ski center
Client: Zweckverband Wintersportzentrum Mitterfirmiansreut-Philippsreut
The Skizentrum Mitterdorf in the district of Freyung-Grafenau is one of the largest ski resorts in the Bavarian Forest. In 2019/20, Montenius Consult together with the renowned engineering office Klenkhart & Partner ZT Consulting from Absam/Tyrol prepared a master plan for a sustainable development of the ski center, which is of enormous importance for the regional tourism industry.
Investments of 20 million euros are planned for the replacement of the Almberg chairlift with a detachable six-seater chairlift and the replacement of the Kleine Almberglift with a fixed-grip four-seater chairlift, as well as the addition of summer attractions, including a canopy tour and the longest flyline in Germany. The construction work is scheduled to be carried out in 2023.
At its meeting on Dec. 13, 2021, the Freyung-Grafenau County Council approved the plans by a majority of 43-3 votes. Montenius Consult prepared the profitability calculations and also presented analyses of the climatic situation in Mitterdorf compared to other low mountain ranges at the meeting. These analyses confirmed the special advantages of the location of the ski area, which is also known as the "Glacier of the Bavarian Forest". A few days later, the government of Lower Bavaria issued the grant notification.
In a further meeting on March 28, 2022, the district council, in its role as a member of the Zweckverband, again voted in favor of the project with an overwhelming majority of 42:7. This paves the way for the planning approval and licensing procedures, which are to be completed before the end of 2022.
