Sunkid: Moving Carpets inspire enthusiasm in Zams and Mieming
Since the company’s founding, Sunkid’s “Winter in the Village” initiative has supported projects of all sizes that bring winter sports as close as possible to local residents with real commitment.
The current COVID-19 situation characterises the winter season of 20/21 as well, making the operation of mountain railways and skiing schools more difficult. Ensuring Christmas operation at least in Austria was highly welcomed.
Winter in Zams
The “Zammer Riefe” in direct proximity of the towns of Zams and Landeck went into operation around Christmas, too. The “Riefe” has a T-bar lift and a Moving Carpet, operated by 60 volunteers from the Zams sport association.
The exercise area known under the name of “Zammer Riefe” has two different lifts for a great offering for young and old. “The lifts are accepted very well. Business commences at 1 p.m. and every afternoon is quite busy,” the people in charge say. An ice rink is located next to the Riefe building, too.
This project is funded by donations and volunteer work.
Winter in Mieming
Since the 1970s, the Mieming municipality has operated a small Sunkid Comfort Star Lift at the “Holzeis-Bichl” across from the Raiffeisenbank in Mieming. After more than 40 reliable years in operation, the Mieming municipality chose to replace the lift with a new Sunkid Moving Carpet to make transport of tobogganers, bobsledders, and walkers up to the sunny “Holzeis-Bichl” easy as well.
The terrain is great for introducing even the youngest children to skiing and snow sports. The busy Moving Carpet is evidence of the joy the facility brings to locals of all age groups.
The Moving Carpet purchase was subsided by the state of Tyrol’s funds for small and very small skiing areas. The subsidy is targeted at improving the offering within the scope of municipal or regional development.
