Provided by Austrian company Doppelmayr, world leader in quality, safety and technology in ski lifts. 
 
The new ski lift is a quad chairlift, featuring a modern system for entering the lift which allows comfortable access and reduces waiting time. Prior to ascent, the rider slides over a moving mat, which propels her/him up to the right speed so that s/he can sit on the chair in a smooth and effortless manner. 
 
The new ski lift will be installed in the Minerva area, the busiest area on the mountain, and, together with existing ski lifts (TS Caris and TK Minerva), will allow a total of 4,230 people per hour to access the area, thus tripling current capacity. 
 
 
 
Technical information:
1,190 m in length
296.50 m in vertical elevation
7.91 min. to ascend
2,100 passengers per hour
4 passengers per vehicle
 
The purchase of this new ski lift belongs to the first stage of mountain redesign, which will enable us to decentralize activities towards other skiable areas of the resort. 
 
The project is part of an expansion and investment policy introduced in the past years in all areas of the Valle, which, through technology, gives rise to the safest and most modern mountain in South America. 
 
Therefore, year after year, Valle de Las Leñas continues providing all its visitors with an excellent service, always being the place where you dream of skiing.
