The Corona crisis and the associated shift in values has forced the Weisse Arena Gruppe to put its future projects to the test. Can planned major projects such as the Cassons cableway be realized? Will guests still feel safe in large gondolas?
Thus, the philosophy of the electric car manufacturer Tesla was merged with the proven technology of mountain cableways. With this new concept, the mountain cableways can not only save up to 50 percent energy but alsow up to 80 percent of maintenance costs. This reduction is achieved when gondolas are only sent on the line when they actually carry people. As a frequency analysis of the Foppa lift has shown, 93 percent of the chairs are not occupied. Therefore, the traditional mountain cableway system was turned upside down. All means of transport, i.e. chairs and gondolas on the Flims-Foppa-Startgels line and in future further on to Segnes-Cassons/Nagens, are always parked in the station and only sent on the line when occupied by guests. The lift will also function like an elevator that does not stop automatically on each floor, but the guest decides where he wants to go – whether to Foppa or all the way to Cassons. That is innovation and pure Greenstyle.
