Val Gardena, one of the most popular resorts in the Dolomites Superski region, plans to open a new cable car at the beginning of the new ski season. Presentation of the Rasciesa funicular will be held on the opening day of ski season at the resort on December 4, 2010.

The new Rasciesa funicular is intended to replace an outdated platform that delivers on the slopes of the Italian Alps guests of the Ortiz resort, which is a part of the Val Gardena ski resort.

The funicular will connect the Ortizei resort by the Seceda gondola and a network of “Gardena Ski Carousel” ski lifts. The funicular will make the slopes of Sassolungo, Sella and other mountains of the Dolomites closer to the tourists.

To date, the resort of Val Gardena has in total 83 lifts that serve 175 kilometers of tracks. Most of the slopes of Val Gardena are equipped with snowmaking systems. Val Gardena is a part of the world's largest ski pass Dolomites Superski, which offers access to 12 ski resorts in Italy.
