Benefits of the tricable gondola system

The tricable gondola system combines all the advantages of the aerial gondola and the funicular. Due to the double carrier cable, it can be run across great lengths with a small number of support towers while still being very stable in the wind. For the Eiger Express, only seven support towers have to be built over the entire length of 6,483 metres. This preserves the landscape and no forest paths are required.

The tricable technology is the only ropeway system that harmoniously blends the desired transport needs with the demand for minimal intervention in nature. Although it is much more expensive to buy than an aerial tramway, the advantages in terms of nature and operation justify these higher costs.
