Travel Time

LAAX never stands still. Not only in the valley and on the slopes, but also in between. The Sogn Martin – La Siala 10-seater gondola lift replaces the 3-seater railway of the same name, built in 1982, by more than one kilometer. Cabins constructed by the cabin manufacturer Sigma with an extraordinary design from Pininfarina (Ferrari) offer maximum freedom of movement, Seat upholstery with heated seat, excellent winter protection and panoramic view. The energy for the heated seating is provided by photovoltaics on the façade of the Sogn Martin valley station. The proceeds from the sale of the 216 nostalgia chairs of the old La Siala chairlift were used 100% to support the survivors of the earthquake disaster in Nepal. The infrastructure project “Revolution am Berg” has been completed with the completion of the new railway.
