Panorama Water Reservoir

Snow reserves in abundance

With a capacity of 415,000 cubic meters, a total size of 35,000 square meters (water surface) and a depth of up to 17 meters this new water reservoir is a bit more than just a small lake in the middle of the mountains and glaciers. Thanks to the new water reservoir at 2,900 m above sea level Tiefenbach Glacier will see a truly outstanding increase of quality when it comes to state-of-the-art snow-making systems.

The giant lake, coated with a layer of asphalt, will be fed by the melting waters of Tiefenbach, Petznerbach brook and Pirchlerbach brook. In future, this huge water reservoir will be an important pillar for the technical snow-making devices of the entire Sölden ski area. For the 40 hectares of glacier slopes (⅓ of all ski slopes at Rettenbach and Tiefenbach) which are covered with artificial snow-making systems, a water reservoir of only 240,000 cubic meters would be sufficient.

Therefore all the remaining capacities can be used by the Gaislachkogl and Giggijoch snow system. Thanks to the high altitude location at 2900 meters, the system can take full advantage of pumping effects. The remaining water feeds the already existing reservoir in the Rotkogel area. Both costs and energy reserves are saved.
