After the original lift ceased operating a quarter of a century ago, one of the most exciting projects in Europe of the summer has been the installation of a new cable car at Pejo, in the Italian Dolomites that will dramatically increase skiable vertical.
The new Pejo 3000 cable car will increase vertical by 600m (or 50%) back up to 1800m from the top of the new lift, at 3000m, down to the base of the slopes at 1200m. For the past two and a half decades the lifts have stopped at 2400m.
The new cable car, which can carry 100 people at a time and ascends 1000 vertical metres from its start point in the Tarlenta area at 2000m over a 4km length in less than six minutes will mean the re-opening of long-forgotten Val della Mite piste, one of the world’s most beautifully and a descent of up to 8km (five miles) in length
Extensive groundwork has renewed and extended the old slope ready for the commissioning of the new lift, and plans are underway to create new slopes in the coming years.
Pejo is part of the Super Skirama Dolomiti Adamello Brenta ski area pass which covers nearly 400km (250 miles) of runs above about a dozen ski areas in the region.
