When the Mellau lift was built back in 1972, this 4-passenger gondola marked a major milestone in Doppelmayr’s company history. It laid the foundation for the international success of detachable ropeway technology. The new 10-passenger gondola lift went into service on schedule for the start of the 2015/2016 winter season. At 3,000 passengers an hour, the new lift offers three times the capacity of its predecessor. The trip along the two-kilometer route takes just six minutes. Generously dimensioned CWA cabins in elegant black with ski racks on the outside replace the original 4-passenger carriers. The new lift is designed for all-year operation as well as for running both day and night. In the winter, it serves as a feeder lift for the Mellau-Damüls ski region. From the Rossstelle top station, which now also accommodates a large part of the cabin parking facilities, visitors can enjoy a breathtaking view down into the valley and across the surrounding mountain panorama.
