Chairlift Visnitzbahn in Samnaun

Visnitzbahn N2

The first 8-seat "D-Line" chairlift in Switzerland.

The lift was opened on December 6, 2019 as the first 8-seater "D-Line" chairlift in Switzerland. The detachable 8-seat Visnitz N2 chairlift leads along 13 round-pipe pillars from the Alp Trida (2,261 m) in direction of Visnitzkopf at 2,633 m, covering an elevation difference of 372 m. The lower terminus was already built in the summer of 2018 east of the mountain restaurant "Skihaus Alp Trida". Furthermore, the already established ski slope 68b also leads directly to the new lower terminus.
Thanks to the new 8-seat chairlift, 900 guests more per hour can now be carried.

Maximum travel comfort

As with the Velilleckbahn chairlift, the chairs feature 520 mm wide individual seats, seat heaters and weather-protection hoods to provide guests with maximum travel comfort. The backs of the new D-Line seats will feature images depicting the history of Samnaun.
