The new 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.
The new Visnitz-chairlift is scheduled to go into service in time for the new 2019/2020 winter season and will be the first 8-seat "D-Line" chairlift in Switzerland.
By the way: Ischgl was named best ski area 2019 by Ski-Portal Snow Plaza. A title worth defending!Velilleck chairlift
