LEITNER ropeways has completed projects at a number of ski resorts in Austria this year.

A new 10-passenger gondola lift has been installed at Maiskogel in Kaprun and is ready to start operating this season. From 2019 onwards, visitors to Maiskogel will also be able to reach the nearby glacier ski resort on the Kitzsteinhorn in a tricable gondola lift.

At the Obertauern resort, LEITNER ropeways has built the new Plattenkarbahn ropeway, a Telemix system fitted with Diamond 10-passenger cabins and Premium 8-seater chairlifts, and capable of transporting up to 3600 people per hour.

In the Tyrol region, the company has completed the new Wimbachexpress 10-passenger gondola lift at the Hochzillertal-Kaltenbach resort, opening up several new slopes as well as access to a freeriding zone on the Wetterkreuz.

Two new LEITNER ropeways systems have also been realised in Kitzbühel. The Brunelle chairlift and Raintal 10-passenger gondola lift replace two 30 and 50-year old lifts in the Kitzbüheler Horn ski area.

The chairs on the Brunelle chairlift feature seat heating, a bubble and genuine leather covers. The journey is now also much faster – in future, travel time to the summit area will be halved from eight minutes to just four.

The Raintal 10-passenger gondola lift, also furnished with seat heating and leather covers, offers even greater acceleration, cutting travel time by two-thirds.
