A new pearl for Slovakia’s biggest ski resort

The Funitel Priehyba-Chopok is the new symbol of the Slovak ski resort Jasná in the Low Tatras. High prevailing wind speeds in the higher Chopok area place high demands on the ski facilities which Doppelmayr/Garaventa have met impressively with the Funitel cable car system.

This system combines the advantages of overhead technology overcoming terrain obstacles, and funiculars which provide stability and weather resistance. It offers outstanding lateral stability at wind speeds of 100 km/hour and above.

Special pneumatic cabin suspension ensures that the 24 passengers can enjoy their ride in maximum comfort. And line speeds of up to 7.5 m/s mean that 3,200 - 4,000 people per hour can be transported to the ski slopes.

The new lift for the 2013 season now means that both sides of the mountains are easily accessible, doubling the rideable area for all.

The Doppelmayr/Garaventa Group is the world leader in ropeway engineering. Their products include rope-propelled systems for public transport, material transport systems and avalanche blasting lifts.
