No carrying your skis back in the evening, no cold ski boots in the morning

Tauplitz Bergbahnen GmbH took advantage of building renovations at the valley station to modernize the ski depot:  the simple coin-operated lockers that used to stand here are gone, and now guests enjoy a spacious, modern ski depot spanning 3 rooms. 


Marketing Director Bernhard Michelitsch explains: "It was particularly important to us that guests should feel more at home. We want them to be able to leave the ski depot wearing comfortable winter boots and not have to walk around in their ski boots for après-ski activities or when going for a stroll or shopping. Number two on our wish list was for the ski room to look nice and clean overall. We have been very successful in both respects."


Lockers for two or for the whole family? 


The 251 storage lockers for skis, poles, ski boots, and helmets can be booked in two sizes: 233 lockers for two and 18 family lockers for five people. If the lockers for 5 are fully booked, guests will be able to get two lockers for 2 at a lower price. That way, you stay flexible. We based the number of lockers and their sizes on experience.

At first glance: the elegant design.


At first glance, it is the high-quality design of the lockers that catches the eye – echoing the standard of quality elsewhere at the "Tauplitz" ski resort. The wood-look doors are designed with a silver wrap and fitted with a scratch protection pad, "so that guests do not have to worry about putting their skis down. Our depot should stay looking this good for a long time," explains Bernhard Michelitsch


Technical refinements.


Ski boots and helmets are dried by xDry air circulation, and the practical online locking system works with a ski pass, making it easy for guests to open and close their lockers securely. The mountain railway actively sells the ski depot at the cash desk. The company is witnessing a high demand for the depot and is receiving a lot of vacation reservations. 


Bernhard Michelitsch has this to say about the transformation: "Christian Hinterschweiger from WINTERSTEIGER Project Management took a highly professional approach to planning, with great drawings and clear visualization. WINTER­STEIGER agreed to all our requests and it all went like clockwork, from ordering to delivery and set-up."
