The new F1 VELILLECK chairlift will be the fastest chairlift in the Silvretta Arena Ischgl/Samnaun as of winter 2019/2020 with 6 m/s.
It will lead up to Pardatschgrat ridge along 16 round-pipe pillars. The new F1 chairlift is thus 1,353 m longer than the old Velilleck chairlift.
The new lower terminus (2,048 m) is in the same location, directly by the No. 7 ski run. The new corridor will veer off slightly to the north-east. The upper terminus of the Velilleck chairlift will also be constructed near the upper terminus of the Gratbahn B8 at 2,620 m.
From the cable sheave all the way to the upholstery of the highly comfortable seats, everything was given a completely new design for the new Gampenbahn lift. The backs of the seats of the new facility were printed with images of plants from the surrounding nature this time. As with the Palinkopf and Gampenbahn lifts, every chair is unique.
Highest passenger comfort and low-noise operation make the new Velilleckbahn lift first class. The new high-tech chairlift features a series of tangible improvements for our guests:
- ergonomically shaped individual seats
- 520 mm wide seats with heating
- safety-optimised design
- optimised safety restraining bar
- for very quiet operation and thus special comfort for our guests, this facility is particularly low-noise and low-vibration.
The new lift is scheduled to go into operation in time for the new winter season 2019/2020. You can read about the current state of construction work in the construction blog HERE
