TMX 6-8 Laner

TMX 6-8 Laner

A modern Telemix system replaced the previous fixed 4-seater “Laner” chairlift in time for the start of the 2016/17 winter season. Equipped with 6-seater chairs and 8-passenger cabins, it doesn’t just improve transport services. It also offers far greater functionality. Parallel to the new facility, a 750-meter-long toboggan run was installed, meaning tobogganists are able to reach their destination easily with the flexible and spacious ropeway. As another bonus, the new installations provide a far more convenient and efficient link to the Pampeago ski resort.

Before construction

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.

Testimonial

Georg

The new toboggan run, following the sunny Laner training slope directly from the top station to the valley station, increased our requirements for the new ropeway. On one hand, we wanted to transport both ski instructors with groups of small children and tobogganists with spacious and comfortable gondolas, but we also wanted to offer skiers a modern 6-seater chairlift. That is why we considered a new Telemix system with spacious gondolas, and we are very happy to have chosen a Leitner system again after over 30 years.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Telemix ropeway?

A Telemix ropeway is an intelligent combination of different vehicles (chairs and gondolas) in a single system. Passengers themselves can decide whether they want to take a chairlift or a gondola to the top of the mountain.

What advantages does the new ropeway provide?

While skilled skiers are returned to the slopes very quickly on comfort chairs and without stepping out of their skis, children, pedestrians or tobogganists can be transported comfortably and safely in the cabins. Tobogganists can take their toboggans into the gondola conveniently. Telemix systems are ideal in summer too (for hikers and bikers), as the line can be operated without chairs as well.

The result

This isn’t just any new ropeway – the new Telemix system has great symbolic value for the Obereggen ski resort and for LEITNER ropeways. The South Tyrolean ropeway manufacturer is returning to the popular ski resort east of Bolzano/Bozen after around 30 years. Equipped with 6-seater chairs and 8-passenger cabins, it doesn’t just improve transport services. It also offers far greater functionality. Parallel to the new facility, a 750-meter-long toboggan run was installed between the Epircher Laner Alm mountain inn and the valley station, meaning tobogganists are able to reach their destination easily with the flexible and spacious ropeway. At the same time, the Laner ski slope was expanded and now offers even more attractive panoramic descents. As another bonus, the new installations provide a far more convenient and efficient link to the Pampeago ski resort.
