Cable Car and parking facilities

In addition, parking facilities have been built for about 260 cars located close to the Skistua area and the bottom cable car station.

Comfortable

“The new cable car is quiet and comfortable. It is also spacious, and skis, bicycles and the like are taken into the cable car. Nothing should hang out with the risk it poses for the hiking and skiing trails, says Florian Aschwanden. "
