Remarks & Notes 
On December 17th, the new funicular from Schlattli to the Stoos sun terrace began operation, the steepest in the world with public service and 2 cars. While the route lies horizontally in the valley and mountain station, the cable car climbs through a total of 3 tunnels with up to 110 % (48 degrees) up the slope and climbs 744 metres in about 4 minutes, the distance is 1547 metres long and the highest speed is 10 metres/second (38 km/h). The cable has a 54 mm (2,125 inch) diameter, the power is 2 x 1000 kW electromotors. The 4 cabins for up to 136 passengers rotate so that the passengers always stand on level ground. A funicular car left the valley station, crosses the bridge over the Muota river and begins its climb with up to 110 %!
