Arosa – Lenzerheide.

Project description

The two famous Swiss ski-resorts Arosa and Lenzerheide were connected in summer 2013 by constructing a new ski-lift. To do so, it was necessary to build a material cable crane, which was installed by LCS. Due to the limited available space a very specific and detailed planning was necessary. The cable crane was installed to cross a valley.
