New Italian Gondola Is World First (30-Aug-09)

Plan de Corones, Italy, August 30, 2009 - A new gondola at Plan de Corones in Italy's

A new gondola at Plan de Corones in Italy’s huge Dolomiti Superski is a world first, the resort claims.

The 10 seater “Marchner” cableway will have a capacity of 3,000 skiers-per-hour and the cabins are fitted with what the resort describes as, “elegant heated leather chairs.”

The lift replaces a detachable chairlift which is being removed, but the route has been modified so that, unlike the previous structure, it has an uphill station close to the downhill station of the Belvedere lift.

In the same region, the six seater “Cianross” lift at San Vigilio di Marebbe which was damaged by an avalanche in spring 2007, will return to work at the start of the 2009/2010 season.

Guests will now again be able to use the “Corn“ and “Cianross” slopes, equipped for night skiing, as well as for the bob slope.
