The child-friendly Silvretta lift now brings winter sports enthusiasts to the summit of Gampapinger Mountain in top comfort and top timing. As from the winter season 2016/2017, the Silvretta Montafon ski area in Vorarlberg will be introducing a huge improvement in comfort with the Silvretta lift from Doppelmayr. The new 8-seater chairlift with seat heating and bubbles, which replaces a double chairlift, marks another important step towards modernization of the lift infrastructure. It now brings winter sports enthusiasts directly to Gampapinger Mountain, where twelve trails and five ski routes await them as descent options. Peter Marko, managing director of the Silvretta Montafon operating company, had this to say: “Even the chairs are state of the art: The comfort seats have padding and seat heating and the child-friendly restraining bars with footrests operate automatically.”
The chair parking facility was installed in the basement to make optimal use of the limited space available in the area of the bottom station. And to ensure that the structure harmonizes visually with its surroundings as well as satisfying the strict requirements for protecting the landscape, the unobtrusive bottom station “grows” out of the rock face.
