Austrians to modernize the Flimspitze lift
No surprises in Ischgl this season. The Austrians stay committed to quality - so they have elected to replace the previous self-heating 4-person lift. The new one is 1840 m long and takes skiers to the altitude of 2757 m, where it meets the Flimsattelbahn station. The height difference stands at 456 meters, and the upgraded self-heating seats each offer space for 8, carried in comfort behind a windscreen. This brings the throughput to 3200 passengers per hour. Sadly, no such improvements in Samnaun on the Swiss side of the border this year.
