On May 7, 1970, the foundation stone for the “Kappl-Dias-Schiliftgesellschaft” was laid, with construction works for the cable cars starting the same year. With lots of energy and budget (1.5 billion Schilling) invested in the project, the first Dias chairlift was able to start operation on December 14, 1970. From then onwards, new lifts and cable cars opened every year and snow-making systems were first installed in the winter of 1989/90.
Today, after 50 years of operation, the ski resort boasts a total of 10 cable cars, lifts and conveyor lifts, ensuring excellent snow fun in the mountains of the Paznaun region. Every hour, the Diasbahn cable car can take a whopping 1,600 guests up to 2,960 metres.
