Olympos Cable Car

The Wetterhornaufzug cable car, built in Grindelwald/Switzerland in 1908, was only the first of many milestones set by the group in modern ropeway technology. It is the undisputed leader and guide of the market in terms of innovation and quality in rope cable car technology with the 60% share of the group in the world markets. Rope cable cars are excellent means of providing respectable access to nature over wide and steep valleys, rivers, glaciers or many other hard-to-reach terrains. At the Olympos Ropeway facilities, the roped ropeway system, which Doppelmayr/Garaventa has planned, built and equipped with the most modern technologies in accordance with European CEN norms and harsh environmental conditions, operates.

In the spring, the red, fine Sahara dust carried by the southeast winds reaches the high peaks of the mountain and thus heralds the beginning of the summer months.
