Before the Telemix system was built, the slope was served by a 25 year-old 4-seater chairlift. Obereggen AG’s original expansion plan was to build the new ropeway on the same route. They also planned to build a second toboggan run in this area, as more and more people were coming to Obereggen to toboggan. The toboggan run is parallel to the quite flat, very sunny Laner slope. Many families with small children ski here, and enjoy the toboggan run. Obereggen AG decided to build a Telemix system to take tobogganists to the top of the slope in comfort too.
