Val Gardena’s new ski runs and the 81-cabin Pininfarina Sassolungo cable car 

Sunday, 17 October 2021 10:27

The Val Gardena (South Tyrol - Dolomites) is an extensive winter sports paradise with 500 kms of slopes and modern ski lifts, and is connected to the world’s largest ski carousel. The slopes are for all levels of skier, from beginners to experts, and for this new season two exciting new ski runs have been added.  They are the La Ria, which was ready last season but never opened, and the Pilat, the long-awaited descent that will bring anyone skiing in the Siusi Alps back to Ortisei.


The new La Ria is a black ski run 

The new black La Ria run, which starts from the top station of the Dantercepies cable car and winds for more than a kilometer at 310 metres asl, has a maximum gradient of 52% and is a pure adrenaline flow for experienced skiers.


The new Pilat run has views over the Val Gardena valley

The other new slope, the Pilat, connects the Alpe di Siusi and the Val Gardena. A natural slope winding through rocky woodlands up to Ortisei, it is a spectacular forest track with unique views over the whole of the Val Gardena valley. It is 4,670 metres long with an altitude difference of 778 metres and an average gradient of 34%.


The new Sassolungo Cable Car can take ten people

Another novelty is the Leitner Ropeways on the Plan de Gralba; a Symphony 10 cabin designed by Pininfarina. This Sassolungo Cable Car has new standards in terms of comfort, safety and performance. The 10-person cabin is spacious and has a large entrance area that overcomes the stress of boarding.


 

The new cableway is an innovative concept of sustainable mobility

The 81 cabins, with premium heated seats by Leitner, have a capacity of 3,450 people an hour.
The cableway just installed in the Sassolungo and Sella area is an innovative concept of sustainable mobility. Thanks to the new lift and the 8-seater Gran Paradiso chairlift with heated seats, you can now reach the Passo Sella pass in just 25 minutes from the Plan de Gralba car park, making it possible to easily get to the Sella Pass even without a car - said Igor Marzola, Director Piz Sella Cable Car.
