The first turf for the new Versciaco–Monte Elmo station was cut on 19.10.2013. The construction of this building brings closer together the two ski areas of Plan de Corones and Dolomiti di Sesto, so now holidaymakers staying in the Val Pusteria region can enjoy a very special holiday experience with access to downhills of over 200 kilometres.
Construction work on the Versciaco–Monte Elmo railway station progressed rapidly and on schedule. The Val Pusteria cycle path was relaid and it reopened at the beginning of July. Moving the path created plenty of space for the new railway track.
The winding railway track was relocated and extended for a section of just under 900 metres. This work could not be completed while normal rail operations continued. So the line had to be closed from 22 September until 2 November 2014.
On November 29 2014, the Versciaco–Monte Elmo station was completed on schedule for the ski opening of the Dolomiti di Sesto ski areas. The opening ceremony for the new station took place on December 14 and rail operations officially commenced on that date.
The skis can be stored easily and quickly in Ski Pustertal Express. Ski stands have been installed in the wagons for this purpose. They must be flipped open manually and provide space for several pairs of skis.
