Mountain Lifts

Damuels mountain lifts - Summer

The Damuels mountain lifts are also in operation during the summer months: the detachable Uga-Express quadruple chair lift with wind protection shields is open from May to October - bringing hikers up to the trailhead of the area's most scenic hiking tours. The lift is also a favorite among those who want to enjoy an easy walk from Damuels to Mellau.

Ample parking areas can be found right at the base station of the Uga-Express mountain lift, a perfect trail head for mountain walking tours. Enjoy an effortless uphill ride to the top, in immediate vicinity to the Damuelser Mittagspitze peak (2095 m) which is a rewarding destination. For less experienced hikers also broad grave trails are available next to the top station, perfectly suitable for prams and strollers.  

At the chair lift top station hikers indulge in picture-book panoramic views. Children can romp around at the playground while parents relax on the sunny terrace of the nearby mountain inns - Elsenalpstube and Berggasthof Uga-Alp. At Michel's Sennhuette, located below the lift station, you can sample local mountain cheese and a glass of fresh cow milk.

If you buy a ticket for a return lift ride in Mellau or Damuels you can use it in both villages, either uphill or downhill!

Faschina Mountain Lifts - Summer

The Stafelalp double chair lift of the Faschina mountain lifts is in operation during the summer months.

Uninterrupted panoramic views invite hikers to take a rest by indulging in the Alpine scenery. Among the highlights: the Rote Wand rock face, the popular Flower Theme Walking Trail on Hahnenkopf and the summer tubing course for families - the longest of its kind in all Vorarlberg.

Take a wonderful uphill ride on the double chair lift and enjoy the outstanding panoramic views. A 360-degree panorama awaits hikers at the middle station of Hahnenkopf at 1780 meters above sea level. A picture-book high elevation trail travels past the region's protected Alpine flora (Flower Theme Walking Trail) from the middle station to the top station at 1865 m. Peak conquerors should head for the Glatthorn summit which promises unique mountain exploration.

The panoramic Stafelalpe double chair lift was awarded with the Austrian summer mountain lift quality seal, a top-class quality certificate issued by the Austrian Mountain Lift Association.
