The Pano is showing the Building of the Ski Lift in Aftersteg, Black Forest. As well you can see the famous PistenBully PB 170 D started being built in 1976 - still proudly in use on to prepare the slopes of the Ski Lift Aftersteg. The PistenBully of the Langmattlift you can see was built in 1981 and has the identification PB42 170D and the Serial Number 10 73 2040.
The Ski Lift Aftersteg, the Langmattlift, is absolutely non-profit. All the people arround Markus Albrecht are working for free. All the revenues form the lift tickets and the Kiosk are used for the Lift and its maintainence and for the PistenBully. Also Sponsorship is important and is playing an important role for the existance of this Ski Lift - new Sponsors are welcome !
The Kiosk offers a nice and simple location for your break while skiing and is a good place to listen to the alemannic dialect spoken in the Black Forest - if you want to improve your german skills visit the Kiosk during your skiing and especially for the Apès Ski.
And remember every Euro you spend, will be used fot the Lift and the PistenBully !
By the way this goes to the management of PistenBully.com in Laupheim:
Please, be so kind in case the old Pistenbully of the Ski Lift Aftersteg brakes down, help those people here. Help them in case of maintaining or bigger repairs of the vehicle but also in case they need a new, used PistenBully !
Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
