GONDOLA <br> NAIFJOCH

GONDOLA
NAIFJOCH

OPENING: WINTER 2022/2023

The new gondola Naifjoch 10-seater will begin operating in the 2022/2023 winter season. This modern lift will replace the 30-year-old Piffing fixed-grip chairlift. The lift is built on a slightly modified route and will have a mid-station with an accessible roof terrace.

37 spacious cabins each for 10 people will carry winter sports lovers in a little over 6 minutes from the Piffinger Köpfl/Merano 2000 mountain station area to the upper reaches of the ski resort. The Naifjoch slope, which has been used in the past, will be reactivated from the Naifjoch middle station to the valley station. In parallel to this, part of the existing ski trail will be modelled so that the lifts on the Piffinger Köpfl can be reached with ease. As an alternative to using the ski trail, in future the return journey can be made in comfort with the gondola lift from the Waidmann Alp to the mid-station. From there skiers can follow the new Naifjoch slope to the Merano 2000 cable car mountain station, the Naifjoch lift valley station or down to Falzeben.

In summer only the section from the Naifjoch valley station to the middle station will operate. This will offer hikers a quick, comfortable and barrier-free way of accessing the Naifjoch and enjoying the spectacular 360º panoramic views available from there. There are unimpeded views of the local mountain, the Ifinger, from the Texel Group to the Ortler region, and across the Merano valley basin as far as the Dolomites and the Sarntal Alps - simply fabulous!
