The topic of this dissertation is the design of the undeveloped area around the village of Kuppelwies in Ulten/South Tirol, with the goal of improving the quality of life economically and socially in order to combat the growing migration away from the municipality. In the course of the development of the Schwemmalm skiing area, a circulating ropeway was constructed in 2008 at the bottom of the valley near Kuppelwies. Since the start of the ropeway, there has been a lack of the necessary facilities such as restaurants, ski hire, ski school, etc. to guarantee a smooth running of operations. In this paper, a concept will be developed for this lack of infrastructure. In addition, the largest outdoor area in the Ulten Valley was created directly next to the valley station and the attached car park by damming the reservoir. The central location in the valley offers the ideal prerequisite for remedying the lack of leisure and social facilities and infrastructure for tourism. Two variants for the available area will be developed in this paper: The first scenario deals with the topic of tourism in the Alpine and rural region. The various usage options serve to enhance winter and summer tourism. The tourism potential of the municipality will be examined and incorporated into the draft. With the second scenario, the focus is on the requirements of the population as Ulten, due to the lack of infrastructure, is also one of the municipalities at risk of outward migration. The range of services offered include leisure and social facilities that should also offer incentives for an economic upturn. Both variants will be analysed for their necessity and regional impact. The strengths and weaknesses of both scenarios will also be rated.
