Hochzeiger Top Station

Smart timber building with a vision

In 2021, the old Rotmoosbahn lift on Hochzeiger mountain was duly retired after 32 years of service. The successor to the cosy four-seater chairlift is a state-of-the-art eight-seater model, aptly named the “2.5”, where 2.5 stands for an altitude of 2,500 metres and thus the highest accessible point of the Hochzeiger ski area. With magnificent views of the surrounding mountains of the Pitztal valley, this awe-inspiring location clearly called for a building with an appropriate design.
