A new star

Velilleckbahn F1 chairlift

High-tech instead of vintage

Did you know that Velilleckbahn chairlift had a busy predecessor? From its beginnings in the 1970s, the fairly old-school but reliable chairlift took about 14 million ski enthusiasts up to the summit. The 2-seater chairlift was first put into operation in 1978 and replaced by a 4-seater chairlift in 1989. In 1993, it celebrated its comeback as the new Velilleckbahn chairlift.
The time had come to say goodbye to the old friend and welcome the new star of Silvretta Arena, the Velilleckbahn F1 chairlift. For more information on the construction of the new chairlift, check out our blog article.
