New gondola and fun toboggan run in Sölden

The top station of this new gondola will move to the same altitude as the Giggijock restaurant, and the piste down (from the top) will be widened to improve the bottleneck.
A new 7km-long toboggan run will open from the Gaislachkogel mid station at 2174m, running down to Solden village at 1377m.
