Aosta-Pila cable way

Valle d'Aosta

The system consists of 2 sections on a total length of over 5 km to connect the city of Aosta with the
ski station, where there are other 10 ski-lift systems : the first section from Aosta to the station of Les Fleurs, the second one from Les Fleurs to Pila with another intermediate station at Plan Praz.
The new system  with automatic clamping with 8-seater cabins and comfortable outdoor ski rack, a capacity of 2400 people an hour, built in 2008, replaces the 6 places cable car built in 1988.  Assuming the function of LPT (local public transport), the vehicles go through the stations at low speed with easy boarding and disembarkation for skiers, pedestrians and persons with reduced mobility.
The area of Les Fleurs kept the existing function of double motive station with the possibility to use the systems separately. The areas of insistence of stations and line supports have substantially
remained those of the original system.
In the buildings of the stations the technical rooms for the working of the cable car and premises for public and staff of the system use have been reorganized for the stream of passengers, warehouses,
electrical equipments, etc.
