Lifts/cable cars Sölden

Sölden offers the most modern lifts for a quick and comfortable ascent up the mountain. Since November 2016, visitors can ascend to the Giggijoch even more quickly and without waiting. The new 10-person gondola lift is the most powerful in the world with a transport capacity of 4500 persons/hour. The connection from the winter ski resort to the glacier ski resort is with the "Golden Gate to the Glacier" connection lift. Sölden's BIG 3 - all are over 3,000 meters high - are accessed with modern cable car lifts. For example, the Gaislachkogl lift provides access with two modern lifts to Sölden's dominant ski mountain, the Gaislachkogl (one of the BIG 3). The new lifts achieve three records - The first section of the lift, an 8-person cable car, has the world's largest transport capacity for an 8-person gondola lift with 3600 persons/hour. The second section of the lift, a 3-S lift with cars holding 30 persons each, holds 2 records: it is the world's highest 3-S lift (3040 m) and it features a unique rescue system - the passengers would not have to leave the cars during an evacuation and would be brought back to the station in safety.
