The Crans Montana ski area has turned its previous transport concept upside down and tailored it to suit the needs of today’s guests. Two new Doppelmayr/Garaventa ropeways, a 6-seater chairlift and a 10-passenger gondola lift, guarantee an all-weather connection between the district of Montana, the popular destination of Arnouva and the winter sports resort of Cry d’Er higher up. Up to now, guests used an older 6-seater gondola lift to reach the ski area from the village. With the new 10-passenger gondola lift Montana–Arnouva, around 1,600 passengers an hour can now travel from the village center in Montana to Arnouva – and even into the evening hours, which means that guests have a convenient means of getting back to the village after a day out. In view of the short route of 550 meters, which the lift covers in just 2.5 minutes, the cabins are designed with standing room.
From the Arnouva mid station, the new 6-seater chairlift Arnouva–Cry d’Er carries up to 2,400 guests an hour to the Cry d’Er snow sports resort 533 meters higher up. All 94 chairs are fitted with bubbles, which protect the passengers against wind and weather. The new parallel loading at the bottom station provides separate loading and unloading for winter sports practitioners and foot passengers. This makes the lift equally attractive for passengers traveling without skis or snowboard.
