If you are planning a ski vacation, we urge you to wait until December 2019 when the
new Manlichen 12-passenger gondola will replace the old gondola, and cut the lift time
in half, or even wait for Dec 2020, where a whole new 14-passenger gondola will be
running from the same base, directly to the Eigergletcher, cutting the lift time to that
area, from today’s 47 minutes, down to just 20.
