6 seater chairlift Plaun Lavadinas - Fuorcla Sura

Formerly Alp Ruschein

SUMMIT STATION SEA LEVEL

Cableway Lenght

VALLEY STATION SEA LEVEL

The 2-seater chairlift from Alp Ruschein to Crap Masegn is a thing of the past. Guests will now be transported on an ultramodern 6-seater chairlift, which has been developed in cooperation with Porsche Design Studio. In addition to its futuristic design, these ultra sleek and comfortable chairs will impress with unique technical innovations. At the back of the seats is a solar panel which covers the power needs required for the heated seats and provides even more comfort. Another highlight is a link in the suspension cabling, that can swing the chair 45 degrees against the direction of travel. Instead of viewing the person in front, guests can enjoy a clear view of the mountain landscape.

Unlike previous chairlifts, the new system also travels at six metres per second instead of five and thus achieves a capacity increase of 20 percent.
