In the summer of 2021, the two double chairlifts will be replaced
by 10-seater gondolas. They are more convenient and provide
barrier-free access up to the Alpjoch.
IMPORTANT: The lower section will be open until autumn without any restricitons.
The technical systems of the Imster Bergbahnen have provided valuable service for many years: The Untermarkter-Alm lift has been in operation since its year of construction in 1991. The Alpjoch-Bahn was bought second-hand.
After it was first installed in 1987, it has been in operation in Imst since 1995.
Despite a valid operating permit and license, the lift systems in Hoch-Imst have reached the end of their operation cycle.
The Untermarkter-Alm lift, the Alpine Coaster and the huts are open daily from 21 May to 5 September 2021! (Subject to changes!)
The building works for the Alpjoch-Bahn lift will start after the winter season, the building works for the Untermarkter-Alm-Bahn after the summer season. The Drischlsteig path and the Alpjoch-Bahn are closed during the summer of 2021.
The station buildings of the valley and the mountain stations as well as the route remain largely unchanged. The 20-seater UAlm gondola and the 10-seater Alpjoch-Bahn will run separately, but share the station building.
Access at ground level provides barrier-free access for seniors, families with toddlers and people with disabilities.
The change from the Untermarkter-Alm-Bahn to the Alpjoch-Bahn in the station building will also be barrier-free.
An uncomplicated transport of prams and bikes will be possible.
Independence from the weather – particularily important for guests of the Alpine Coaster in the period from May to late October.
Safe transport of several children possible (ski courses, ski clubs, kindergarten children, school children…).
The gondolas offer significant cost advantages over the entire operation duration:
Workshop and garages:
The Imster Bergbahnen will have a suitable workshop for carrying out maintenance work on piste equipment and system components.
