On December 17, 2017 at 12:17 p.m. local time, the new Stoos lift was opened for public operation. The new funicular ropeway to the Stoos is not only a generation construction but also an achievement of state-of-the-art ropeway engineering. The changing gradients can be compensated thanks to the four cylindrical passenger sections that are used for the first time ever. The passenger level remains horizontal even during the conquest of the maximum slope of 110%.
