21.11.12 - The Oscar in Tourism goes to the Global Novelty, the 'CabriO' Ropeway
The so called 'Milestone', the most important prize in Swiss tourism, in 2012 goes to the 'CabriO' ropeway, the first ropeway in the world with an open upper deck. 30 persons out of a total of 60 passengers per cabin may enjoy the journey out on the upper deck with a free view over the Swiss mountain panorama. With an operating speed of 8 m/s the ropeway can transport 465 persons per hour and direction. The 'CabriO' ropeway is a combination of a funifor and a classical reversible aerial ropeway. With this technical innovation a unique adventure for the visitors was created.
