A souvenir photo from the ski area is simply part of a successful ski holiday. With special photo points, ski area operators offer a great opportunity to have your photo taken in front of a specially selected panorama free of charge. Later, the pictures can be accessed online and shared via social networks. SnowTrex presents particularly attractive photo points.
The ski pass is the key
The ski pass is only for riding the lifts? Not everywhere. In some ski resorts it also serves as an electronic shutter release for cameras. At the so-called photo points, usually located at vantage points with a great panorama, guests can have their picture taken for free using their ski pass. Many of these photo services are linked to the online platform skiline.cc, which offers around 20 photo points and over 80 skimovie routes in Austria alone. The photos and skimovies taken there can be viewed online via your own ski pass number and downloaded. Some photopoints also offer a special motif. Here are a few attractive examples:
Big 3 in Sölden
Where the mountains are highest, the panorama is particularly captivating. Thus, the Sölden ski area with its 3,000-metre peaks is predestined for unique shots. The mountain stations on the Tiefenbach, Gaislach and Schwarzkogel glaciers are not only the three highest ski peaks in the ski area, but also the “Big 3”: the roof terrace on the panorama restaurant next to the Gaislachkogel cable car, the panorama rock footbridge on the Tiefenbachkogl, which juts out 20 m above the abyss, and the nature platform above the Schwarzen Schneidbahn mountain station. Great viewing platforms and formidable photopoints await you here.
