A modern 8 person chairlift with heating, bubbles and automatic bars will replace the old L7 Sportbahn 6 person chairlift.
With the opening of the new 8 SBK Asitzkogelbahn, the last bottleneck in the Asitzmulde will be eliminated.
After 20 years of operation, the detachable 6-seater Sportbahn 2000 chairlift was carefully dismantled last summer and given a second life in a Polish ski area in the interest of sustainability. After several months of construction, a new highlight was built in its place for optimal skiing fun: a state-of-the-art detachable 8-seater chairlift with weather protection hood and safety bar from Doppelmayr with a capacity of 3,700 people per hour.
Managing Director of the Leoganger Bergbahnen, Kornel Grundner, is happy about the quality improvement in the Asitzmulde and explains:
"This last piece of the puzzle had been in the plan for a long time, but Corona put the implementation on hold for the time being. At the end of January 2022, however, the starting signal was given and with the start of the season all winter sports enthusiasts can not only look forward to a state-of-the-art, fast lift, but also to an even wider and more comfortable slope in the area of the valley station. In terms of design, the station buildings fit perfectly into the line of the Steinbergbahn, Muldenbahn and Asitzgipfelbahn and also include heated group rooms and lockers. A photovoltaic system on the south side of the valley station provides green solar power for the operation of the underfloor heating in the offices, toilet facilities and lounge.”

Length: about 800 m
Capacity: 3.700 Personen/Stunde
Speed: 6 m/sec
Height difference: 236,5 m
Ride duration: 2 min, 54 sec
