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.
