Fernpaß, Ortler range, summiting, tepee tent, spring revival, ??, pole lift (?)


Explanation:
Fernpaß - I don't think this has an English name
Ortlermassiv - 'massiv' is usually 'range' ini English, and I don't think there is a separate English name
Gipfelsieg - literally, 'conquering the summit', but this is generally considered too aggressive (not PC) in NA, unless used tongue in cheek
Frühlingserwachen - probably you want something more poetic or romantic. perhaps 'the first buds of spring' or 'the first flush of spring'
CEE - sorry, can't help
Stockbahn - apparently an Austrian term; if (as I assume) it is a type of ski lift, then 'pole lift' is OK (another name, which is actually a trade name, is also used, but I can't remember it).

Fernpass = international route through a mountain range; Ortel range; summit conquest;


Explanation:
tipee or tipee-style tent; spring budding/spring awakening
CEE/night > sorry, however the "/night" probably refers to some rate per night
Stockbahn is probably a proper name for a cable car or local train
Good Luck

more on Stockbahn


Explanation:
if it's a ski lift, then:

the type like an upside-down T (for two people side-by-side) is T-bar lift;

the type with a platter that you stuff between your legs (for a single person) is I think called a poma lift, but I've only seen these in Europe

Explanation:
Fernpass (modern German spelling of Fernpaß) is a pass with the modern infrastructure for long distance travel such as the Brenner Pass and many others in Austria and Switzerland that allow relatively high-speed road or rail transit north<>south through the Alps. A mountain range = Bergkette not a Massiv. A Massiv = massif. Gipfelsieg = reaching or climbing to the top. Tipizelt is just German for any tent with the shape of an Indian teepee. Frühlingserwachen = the rebirth of spring or the coming of spring or, or, or. CEE = Central and Eastern Europe. CEE/night might be a special train that travels through CEE at night. Stockbahn = mountain railway.
