The new Flumserberg Tannenboden 8-passenger gondola lift now only takes half as long up to the Maschgenkamm, in fact ten minutes. The 3.2-kilometer-long ropeway runs over 20 towers and overcomes an altitude difference of around 600 meters. The new lift replaces a 4-passenger gondola lift on almost the same route. The bottom station has already been assembled and the helicopter assembly of the towers was carried out with the multi-purpose helicopter Super Puma. Bartholet's special new suspension devices make the assembly of the sheave train with the helicopter considerably easier, so that the towers and sheave trains could be assembled in just two days. The assembly of the mountain station as well as the rope pull and the splicing were carried out in summer, so that the scheduled commissioning for the upcoming winter season can take place.
The lift, equipped with 105 gondolas, has a transport capacity of 2’400 passengers per hour. One of the gondolas was specially designed for the Swissartexpo. The artist collective RatAess from Vorarlberg opens up a completely new perspective on the gondola with various mirror elements. The "Art Gondola" will also be turning its rounds on the Maschgenkamm this winter.
