Inseparable the rise of the Katschberg to one of the top ski areas of Carinthia named Bogensperger connected.
Hias Bogensperger, the Katschberg pioneer, was actually sawmill owners from Tamsweg. On his trips across the Katschberg for timber loading to Spittal he often took children and their sleds. Because it occurred to him that there, where you can toboggan, probably the skiing should be possible. And because the man did not do things by halves, he took over in 1955 equal to the Jausenstation Kastner am Katschberg. Skiing makes finally hungry! In 1956 he built the first lift in the Tschaneck.
What was so easy not because winter came very early and then the Katschberg hid already under a meter of snow blanketing the still concreting were carried out this year. Nevertheless, the lift operation could be taken in December. Not so easy in those days turned out to be the preparation of the slopes. But even then knew Hias Bogensperger even Salzburger national champion in skiing, Rat: A large roll was pulled by tow lift to the summit and it drove Hias’ daughters then to the valley. 15 times – before the track was finished.
