State-of-the-art technology combined with a high-quality "Design by Porsche Design Studio" give the new 10-passenger gondola lift in Gstaad a special character. The exclusive equipment of the gondolas offers an unforgettable ride experience.
First Bartholet 10-seater gondola lift in Switzerland
Since 21st December, the new 1,500-metre-long ropeway system to the Eggli has been successfully in operation. Starting from Gstaad, the replacement lift overcomes 500 metres in altitude and passes eleven towers with a gauge of 6.45 metres. This is Bartholet's first 10-seater gondola lift in Switzerland. This attractive ropeway transports 1,200 persons per hour. Thanks to the ideal combination of innovation and comfort, the 20 luxurious panorama gondolas offer a unique travel experience. The cabin is equipped with safety laminated glass and a generous interior design including a voice communication system, WLAN and interior lighting. Even at night, the colour-programmable exterior lighting ensures that the gondolas look special. The required battery is positioned in the bottom of the gondola.
Also noteworthy are the very wide 490mm seats and the drainage of the interior through slots in the floor. Thanks to the new gondola lift, the Eggli is also accessible without barriers and without complications for people with special needs. The construction of the facility on the "Mountain for bon vivants" was generously supported by, among others, “Gstaad Société pour la Préservation de l'Eggli” and “Club de Luge”.
