Stoos Undertakes Modernization Of Chairlifts

Technical progress for more efficient use of energy and more comfort in the chairlifts on the Fronalpstock.

After more than a year of intensive planning, the drive and control of the chairlifts on Fronalpstock will be replaced. Through technical innovation, the energy required can be used more efficiently and sustainably. After the overhaul, the control and drive technology of the chairlifts is state-of-the-art and offers more comfort during journeys and when getting on and off. The first materials and technical hardware have recently been delivered by Garaventa AG

The control and drive of the Fronalpstock chairlifts are being renewed. Therefore, the chairlifts on Fronalpstock will not be in operation from March 25th to May 17th, 2024. The Klingenstock chairlift will be in operation until April 7, 2024 (winter sports only).

The car-free mountain village lies on a high plateau of the same name at the foot of the Fronalpstock. The summit of the local mountain can be easily reached with the covered chairlift. A breathtaking panoramic view awaits you at the top - of ten lakes, the Pilatus, the Rigi, the Säntis, the high Alps and the Central Plateau all the way to the Jura. Vertically at its feet you can see the fountain and the Rütli.

The winter sports paradise in central Switzerland can be reached via Schwyz easily, quickly and without any traffic jams. The many-sided offer guarantees snow fun for the whole family:
