Opening chairlift Oberdamuels
State governor Markus Wallner personally sent his congratulations for the official opening on Saturday (30 March).
"The new Innovation brings another qualitative appreciation that ultimately benefits the entire Region," Wallner said. Since the start of the winterseason, the new railway with its 55 armchairs for six passengers each has already proven its worth. A total of 2800 People can be transported with the powerful system by hour. The increased speed of transport also contributes to a significant increase in capacity. "The drive time opposite the old double chairlift has more than halved ," said Markus Simma, Managing Director of the Damuelser Seilbahnen. Wallner sees the new innovation step of the Damuelser Seilbahnen in line with the goals of the Vorarlberg Tourism strategy 2020. Musically, the official opening was framed by Musikverein Alpenklaenge. Georg Willam made te solemn blessing. After the opening and a trip to the summit station, the celebration was in the Gemeindesaal Damuels.
