The Klausberg ski area in South Tyrol has recently added a new 10-passenger gondola to its lift infrastructure. It replaces a Doppelmayr ropeway which operated all year round for a total of 20 years. The modernization of the feeder lift was necessary because of the large volumes of passengers. The new installation with spacious cabins brings up to 2,800 passengers an hour into the ski area and also offers room for the transport of baby strollers and mountain bikes. The integrated ski holders and significantly enhanced loading and unloading comfort provide additional benefits.
While the new bottom station has retained its original location, the top station has been moved 15 meters to enable easier access to the lift for guests, who now enjoy getting to the slopes in less time. The time taken to build the K-Express has to be a record. Doppelmayr completed the new gondola lift in just three months without interrupting either winter or summer operations.
