Up to Pardatschgrat at top speed

F1 Velilleck chairlift in Ischgl

Higher, faster, further: This could be the motto of the latest star among the Silvretta lifts and cable cars. After all, the new Velilleck chairlift, which will take winter sports athletes up to summit joy as of the 2019/2010 winter season, sets new standards in many ways.

In the summer of 2019, the cable car company Silvrettaseilbahn AG invested in a top-class chairlift with hoods. Technology, design, comfort – the new Velilleck chairlift has it all! 

 From old …

The powerful Velilleck chairlift, which is about to take guests up to lofty heights, once started out quite small.

In 1978, in order to relieve the load on the Höllboden T-bar lift, a chairlift was built from
Höllboden up to Idalp. This 2-seat chairlift was replaced in 1989 by a fixed-grip 4-seat
chairlift.The 2-seat chairlift was re-erected in 1993 as the Velilleck chairlift and was put into service
on 26 December of that year

Small but mighty: From its early days in the 70s, the reliable chairlift carried around 14 million people!
