New and renewed lifts and slopes for 2009/2010 in Dolomiti Superski area
Plan de Corones (Kronplatz)
The 10 seater â€œMarchnerâ€ cableway (3,000 P/h) at Plan de Corones is the first of its kind in the world: the cabins are fitted with elegant heated leather chairs. The ski lift path has also been renewed, in contrast to the previous structure it has an uphill station close to the downhill station of the Belvedere cableway. The existing automatic hook-on chairlift will be dismantled.
The 6-seater â€œCianrossâ€ cableway at San Vigilio di Marebbe, damaged in an avalanche in spring 2007, will return to work at the start of the 2009/2010 season. So guests will now be able to use the â€œCornâ€œ and â€œCianrossâ€ slopes, equipped for night skiing, as well as for the bob slope.
The 6-seater â€œCiampaiâ€ chairlift with automatic hook-on (2,200 P/h) will replace the previous 2-seater lift.
Val Gardena/Siusi Alp
The â€œCiampinoiâ€ cableway (2,400 P/h) in the centre of Selva Gardena, will be fitted with 12 seater cars, maintaining the hourly capacity of 2,400 P/h.
In place of the current â€œBullacciaâ€œ single seater chairlift (Siusi Alps) a Telemix lift will be installed, the third of its kind in Italy. Along this stretch comfortable cars alternate with multi-seater chairlifts, to satisfy both the safety needs of families with children and the comfort of skiers who don’t want to remove their skis on the way up. The new stretch will be 300m longer than the previous one. The underground top station will almost totally eliminate any environmental impact.
In the centre of Santa Cristina in Val Gardena the â€œPlan da Tiejaâ€ ski lift will be replaced by a new one of the same kind. The size and capacity remain the same, although the technology is state-of-the-art.
Val di Fiemme/Obereggen
Ski Center Latemar presents the new slope â€œTorre di Pisaâ€, a technical run, which is an alternative to the existing slope â€œ5 Nazioniâ€œ in the area of Passo Feudo/Predazzo. The run is 1,550 m long, marks a vertical drop of 460 m and is up to 59 % steep. The new run â€žTorre di Pisaâ€œ is served by the automatic 4-seater â€žGardonÃ¨/Passo Feudoâ€œ chairlift.
