First-class skiing

The Austrian company Doppelmayr contributes greatly to the development of ski resorts and modernization of sports infrastructure in Kazakhstan. The gondola lift at Shymbulak is one of the longest mono-cable ropeways in the world and was built by this world market leader.  

The Austrian company Doppelmayr is a most successful and reliable partner in implementing innovative transportation solutions. Doppelmayr’s scope of business includes passenger ropeways for winter, summer and urban applications, material transport systems, avalanche blasting ropeways, automatic ropeway systems and concepts for year-round operation. It is impressive that more than half of all ropeway systems installed worldwide originate from this family owned business.

Downhill skiing is becoming very popular in Kazakhstan and has seen fast growth. Every year winter sports enthusiasts experience an ever-improving infrastructure and distinctive service. A concept for developing five to seven new ski areas has been approved.

Doppelmayr built the gondola lift leading to the largest ski resort, Shymbulak, just outside Almaty with a capacity of 2,000 people per hour. Shymbulak was the venue for the Asian Winter Games in 2011 and will host downhill ski competitions during Winter Universiade in 2017. The upcoming development of new ski areas around Almaty and in other parts of Kazakhstan offers new opportunities for ropeway constructions. Austria’s expertise and Doppelmayr’s reliability will remain indispensable for winter entertainment in Kazakhstan and worldwide.
