Schilthorn mountain station: extension skier ramp and lift tower

It was time for some change at the Schilthorn mountain station built in 1968. So in 2015/2016 a skier ramp and a lift tower were added. Not an easy task at this altitude, the topographical conditions and the ground conditions. The Top12 stainless reinforcing steel permanently protects the 18 m long anchors of the ski lift ramp and lift tower at the Schilthorn from corrosion in the rock and permafrost. And since 18 m would have been a bit too long to be transported up by train or helicopter, 3 m measuring parts were put together piece by piece and the whole thing was installed. Thanks to the Top12, special corrosion protection of the transitions was not necessary. A much lower effort compared to conventional steel elements, which would have been 50 % heavier.
