GD10 WEISSSEEJOCHBAHN

GD10 WEISSSEEJOCHBAHN

The new “Weißseejochbahn” commenced operations on the Kaunertal Glacier in Winter 2021/22. The 10-passenger gondola lift starts near the middle station of the existing Ochsenalmbahn chairlift at 2,494 meters, leading almost two kilometers up to the Weißseejoch at 3,044 meters. Building this new ropeway has made the ski resort even more attractive and modern. Additional runs and a large area for freeriders have been on offer since December 2021. The ropeway is equipped with Premium Cabins Diamond EVO, which were custom-designed for the client. These comfortable single seats are covered with loden fabric and a special material has been applied to the ceiling of the cabin to create a pleasant feeling of space. Much emphasis has also been placed on making the stations’ architecture attractive. The two buildings in the valley and on the mountain have been designed to be as compact as possible, so that they blend perfectly into the surrounding mountains.
