6-CLD-B Furka-Zipper Davos Klosters Bergbahnen AG Davos | Switzerland Inclined length 1,587 m Vertical rise 381 m Speed 6.0 m/s Capacity 2,500 PPH Ropeway generation D-Line // Cozy protection against wind and weather. A sporty and comfortable ride. Enjoy the first-class feeling. At the start of the 2017/18 winter season, Switzerland’s first D-Line ropeway opened in Davos: the Furka-Zipper. The detachable 6-seater chairlift brings guests from Gruobenalp to Parsennfurka in just five minutes, connecting the ski areas Parsenn Davos and Gotschna Klosters like a zipper. It is equipped with heated seats as well as bubbles and provides comfortable and easy transport for up to 2,500 passengers an hour. The latest D-Line ropeway technology from the Doppelmayr/Garaventa Group offers more room and also top ride comfort. At the same time, the D-Line ensures quieter operation and simpler maintenance. The alignment of the Furka-Zipper was a particular challenge as the required station locations meant taking the new lift above and below two existing lifts. 85
