Over the pond if a resort spanks 5.3 million euros on a new chairlift, the whole world will know about it, but in Austria it's just a little foot note in their press pack.

Anyway, you can say goodbye to any gridlock in Gerlos, as the old Krummbach double chair lift has been replaced by a 6-seater chair lift with weather-protection hoods and the obligatory heated seats and a naty title of the Moseltret-X-Press
