St Anton gets cableway innovation

St Anton gets cableway innovation If you're headed out for a ski holiday in St Anton this ski season, you will be greeted by the sight of a quite spectacular new cableway innovation.

Based on a Ferris wheel, the new gondola cableway system is a world first, with 28 floor levels gondolas allowing skiers access. The gondolas are then lifted back up onto the cable to be taken up the mountain.

The Galzigbahn, as the cable way is known, has had its carrying capacity increased by three times, meaning you spend less time waiting to get up to the mountain and more time on the slopes during ski holidays in St Anton.

Not only is the invention itself impressive, the building that houses the Ferris wheel system is also something special.

The glass building has been designed by Tyrolean architect Georg Driendl and looks spectacular sitting at the base of St Anton's fabulous slopes.

It's certainly something to look forward to as you head off for a ski holiday in St Anton this winter.
