to the Rendel area of St Anton. After 35 years of operation it was retired at the end of the 2009 season.
We were fortunate to get a first hand look at this lift before it was removed. I have to say I prefered the
Sunny Side of Rendl, sadly with the new Rendlbahn's terminal in the center of town, it will no longer
be a local stash. The last few pictures are a tribute to the famous Rendl Beach at the summit terminal
The lift was replaced by a Leitner 8 passenger mono-cable gondola in 2010. The new summit terminal reused
about 1/3 of the orignal structure, the rest was demolished and rebuilt including a new gondola area and restaurant
seating area and ski shop. The 80's theme was iconic and added to the festivities. The orange bar umbrellas appear
in countless brochures and guide books. The lift had CWA brand 6 passenger cabins.
