GD10 Col Drusciè

GD10 Col Drusciè

As of this winter, the ski resort of Tofana in Cortina d’Ampezzo has a brand new 10-passenger gondola lift. The LEITNER ropeways installation “Col Druscié” takes passengers to the Col Druscié comfortably and in very little time. The ropeway replaces the first section of the 50-year-old aerial tramway “Freccia nel Cielo”, which connected Cortina d’Ampezzo with the summit of Cima Tofana, one of the highest peaks in the Dolomites (3,244 m). This upgrade modernizes the link from Cortina to Col Druscié and the middle station in Colfiere right on time for the upcoming Alpine World Ski Championships 2021 and the Olympic Winter Games 2026. The waiting times for the ride to the summit have also been significantly reduced. LEITNER ropeways, PRINOTH and DEMACLENKO have also established a strategic alliance with the Fondazione Cortina 2021: the companies will support the foundation as the technical supplier during the Alpine World Ski Championships in 2021.
