Construction of the Blatten – Chiematte 8 Person Gondola Lift
Blatten Car Park
Blatten REKA Holiday Village
The construction of the new gondola lift from Blatten to the Belalp will commence after the winter season 2012/13. At the valley station, in place of the present administration building, a four-story office building will be constructed, where the gondola lift will be installed on the same level as the present cable car. The Garaventa installation with 42 8-person gondolas has a transportation capacity of 1600 people per hour and can be extended to 2000 people per hour, if necessary. Thereby, the new transportation capacity will be three times higher, than at present. Waiting times in Blatten will be a thing of the past. The same building will also house the tourism office, a ski school, the Belalp Alpine Centre, and a post office. An area of 270 m2 will be purchased by a sports shop. This way, guests will have everything in one place in the new premises. In the building of the mountain station 300 m2 will be sold to private buyers.
The car park, which currently is under construction, will be open in autumn 2013. Altogether, 272 public, 148 private, and 280 outdoor parking spaces will be available. Consequently, up to 700 parking spaces can be offered in Blatten. The construction of the REKA Holiday Village will commence on 10 April 2013, and the opening is planned for winter 2014/15.
Due to the significant construction works in Blatten, noise disturbances cannot be avoided. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
