The new chairlift, which will start from an elevation of 1,730 meters and reach 1,950 meters, will have the length of almost one kilometer (916 meters) and a drop of 220 meters. Its route will run between the new snow front to the area where the Bolage, Tajera and La Mina slopes converge, with a capacity of 1,800 people per hour.

The board of contracts has evaluated all the technical proposals in relation to the economy of the contract, the construction methodology, machinery and the technical means that will be used, as well as other technical and environmental improvements proposed.

Work on the project, including the Aragon General Interest Project for the expansion of the Aramón Valdelinares ski resort will begin as soon as possible and will last for about four months.
