The Gurschen–Gurschengrat chairlift was officially opened as the first installation forming part of a major project for the Andermatt-Sedrun ski arena. The detachable 6-seater chairlift with bubbles, Gurschen–Gurschengrat, is the first Installation to be completed for a major project in the Swiss ski area of Andermatt. This is the first time that a comprehensive operating license application process has been initiated to cover an entire ski area including snowmaking and infrastructure. Garaventa provided assistance for Andermatt-Sedrun Sport AG not only with the planning and construction of the ropeway but also with the administrative procedures. At four months, the time frame for construction and installation was extremely tight. The lift was nonetheless completed on schedule and went into service for the start of the 2015/16 winter season. Leaders from the world of politics, business and tourism, who attended the inauguration, were all convinced that the installation will have a positive knock-on effect for the development of the Andermatt-Sedrun region as a whole.
