Giggijoch Sölden

Mountain station at Giggijoch in Sölden

The open, transparent construction of the mountain station on the Giggijoch at an altitude of 2,283 metres cannot fail to take you by surprise. A 47 x 44 m steel construction, spanned with film, floats above a concrete base, which virtually disappears into the landscape, acting both as load carrier and protection from the weather. Inside it houses several floors, including the traction equipment station, a type of garage for gondolas, with a traction power of 150 tonnes.

The steel construction was galvanized by ZINKPOWER Brunn and Moson.
