Pardatschgratbahn (Ischgl, Austria)

Thanks go to Reader Reto from Switzerland, who sent us a video of the mighty Pardatschgratbahn in Ischgl, Austria.

This new 3S cable car adds to the small but growing list of tricable detachable gondolas in the world. It reportedly has the greatest height difference of any 3S: 1,251m! (That’s almost 50% taller than the world’s tallest building in Dubai.)

Even more impressive is the 3S’s design. With its slick red, white and black cabins, this system is one of the most aesthetically pleasing 3S gondolas yet. For a full system description click here.
