The new Cortina-Col Druscié Gondola is going to replace the first stretch of the Freccia del Cielo cable car and will be operating from the 2019/2010 winter season opening.

The  lift has 10-person cabins with a capacity of lifting 1,800 people per hour, three times as high  as the existing cable car.
