News from the Zillertal Arena

Standing still is going backwards. For this reason, the Arena cable car companies are not resting on their laurels, but have set themselves ambitious goals for the next few years: long-awaited projects will be implemented in the coming months, which will not only represent milestones in the development of products and services in the Zillertal Arena, but will also have a positive impact on the entire region.

NEW FROM WINTER 2022/23: 8er-Sesselbahn Kapauns

The next major milestone in the further development of the Zillertal Arena is already just around the corner: the connection between Zell and Gerlos will be more comfortable, more efficient and much more attractive in the future. The new Kapauns 8-seater chair lift with extended route is the first step in this direction as a replacement for the existing 2-seater chair lift and already awaits you in winter 2022/23. Our guests will be transported up to the cold Übergangsjoch protected by the cover and warmed up by the heated seats. The use of the environmentally friendly LEITNER direct drive also deliberately ensures sustainability.

    New from Winter 2023/24: 10er-Gondelbahn Krimml-x-Press

    The connection between Zell and Gerlos will be more comfortable, more efficient and much more attractive in the future.

    Subsequently, the Krimml-X-Press connecting cable car will transport guests quickly and safely directly between Zell and Gerlos as a 10-seater gondola with high stability against the wind and no stops. The spacious gondola cabins will be equipped with heated seats for even more comfort here too. The planning not only relied on state-of-theart ropeway technology from LEITNER, but also made an architectural statement in collaboration with the internationally renowned Snøhetta architects’ firm.

    • 10-seater cable car with heated seats
