The Hoher Ifen in Kleinwalsertal is a landscape highlight in Europe and equally popular with winter sports enthusiasts and hikers. A new Doppelmayr ropeway has provided access to the mountain since December 2016. The Olympia lift in Kleinwalsertal carries 2,000 passengers an hour to the popular Olympia slope in top comfort – and at 6 m/s, currently ranks as the fastest chairlift in the province of Vorarlberg. The new Olympia lift is equipped with bubbles, seat heating and child-friendly restraining bars. It replaces a surface lift between Ifenhütte and the top station, and provides another route to the ski area from the base. A new storage pond and snowmaking installation with a capacity of 100,000 m3 ensure optimal skiing conditions. In addition, the operating company is also building more lifts on the Ifen itself as part of the quality drive. Two 10-passenger gondola lifts belonging to the new D-Line generation are set to replace the Ifen and Hahnenköpfle lifts, with construction scheduled to start in spring 2017 once the snow has melted.
