Construction of the new Wildspitzbahn gondola will begin this summer 2011 but the new lift will take around 18 months to complete and is scheduled to open for winter 2012-13.
"Not only are the new lift's architecture and technology outstanding, but it will also access a unique view from the ‘levitating terrace‘ of the 3.440m high bistro on to Tyrol's highest peak - the Wildspitze with 3.774 m - and onto the surrounded mountain world." said a statement from the ski centre.
