Starting in December, 42 new premium-quality "Design by Porsche Design Studio" chairs will transport 1’600 passengers per hour up the Arosa mountain over an altitude difference of 430 metres within five minutes. Equipped with hoods and comfortable upholstered seats, the new 6-passenger chairlift with a length of 1,287 metres replaces the oldest chairlift on the also called "relaxing mountain".
In summer, special suspension devices enable the transport of bikes. Operation in the evening and at night will also be possible.
The entrance at the valley station, which is located directly next to the lively Weisshorn middle station, is now accessible at plane level. The bottom station includes a modern annex building with wardrobes, drying room, kitchen and recreation room for the employees.
Special attention is given to tower number 11, which was devoted to the former top ice hockey player and current Chairman of the Board of Directors of Arosa Bergbahnen AG, Lorenzo Schmid. In his ice hockey career as a team support for the EHC Arosa, the Zurich Ice Skating Club or as captain of the Swiss national team, he always wore the number 11 on his shirt. The number tag of the tower is designed in the retro shirt of the EHC Arosa and with the name of the player.
