Great News:
New Madlochbahn will be constructed summer 2019, up and running for season 2019/20
Going to be a 10 pax gondola ("EUB"), with similar entrance system as Trittkopf, starting in Zürs, with midstation at Seekopf, and further up to Madloch.
The current 4 pax chair to Seekopf will stay.


If Seekopfbahn stays, is Zürsersee to be removed? I cannot see the need, or space, for 3 lifts.

Some serious slope work will be needed on the Madloch-Zug side to cope with the traffic. There are some tight choke points on that run, which will be scenes for carnage if not re-engineered. As @Markymark29 has implied, the Zug lift will then also become a choke point.

Madloch is all going to the 3 year schedule

Just moves the bottleneck to Zug.

The New Gondola still not confirmed from Zug to replace chair requires tree felling , avi barriers & that is a big enviromental problem fight....

Not sure this is good news at all. Maybe less peak queues in Zuers but that just means crowding on the Madloch runs and not good in Zug either. Personally would prefer to spend an extra couple of minutes in a queue for a more pleasant skiing experience.

If they don't sort Zug lift at same time it'll not only be carnage on the run down but huge queues at the bottom of Zug.

@Markymark29,
no other details. I only know a lot is going on between Lech and Zug. Also a new piste from Kriegerhorn to Zug is planned (probably the Zuppert route). Major works on avalanche barriers are coming on Kriegerhorn-south/west, making that slope avalanche safe (and the little hamlets along the road, it is a very dangerous area), and providing Zug with the long awaited avalanche safe ski-connection.
And I have a hunch they are thinking (planning?) about connecting Madloch-Lech to the Schlegelkopf.

In the meantime: Madloch-Lech is a very pleasant alternative to Madloch-Zug. With lunch at Hus8 or Gasthof Post Toofy Grin Toofy Grin Toofy Grin

It appears that the first track of the new Madlochbahn will replace the Zürserseebahn, which will be removed.
They will have to either widen the skibridge then, or put the basestation at Hexenboden-side (although that probably is a too narrow location I would think)

Wonder if anyone can clarify? Monday quiz! I was having a discussion/ debate yesterday with ski mate and can’t find the answer online - the 2 large earth-constructed avalanche barriers at the bottom of Hinterrendl....what year were they constructed?

I do not think any new pistes will be realised im Lech or Zurs if UVP have their say & rightly so imo !!

First real snows on the way next week, colder temperatures at elevation which is good for this time of the year..

There is a suggestion of a storm on Wednesday but lets see before getting too excited. It does seem though that this weekend might be the last of the really nice autumn weather for trips on foot into the mountains, signs of wetter cooler weather on the way.

New Schindlergratbahn

https://www.gamprin.li/fileadmin/user_upload/Dokumente/Protokolle/2018/Protokollauszug_02.05.2018.pdf

Some background to why the tiny municipality of Gamprin in Liechtenstein bought Alpe Rauz for 60 000 Kronen (for their Cattle)

https://www.vaterland.li/liechtenstein/vermischtes/60-000-kronen-fuer-eine-alp;art171,330777

"The local council gives its assurance for the construction of the new Schindlergratbahn"

It is interesting to see how the alps have changed over the past hundred years. When this parcel of land was bought by a community next to the Rhine river, long distance Transhumance was very common in farms near the alps and access to summer pastures was a valuable asset. These days much less so, though the "locals" lift pass discount for residents of Gamprin must be useful. It is a bit odd to see planning applications for a new lift mixed in with an application for a new bathroom in the local Presbytery
