6-seater chairlift replaces "oldtimer“
From winter 2015/16, hop on the new Schernthannbahn and the sky in the SkiWelt will always be blue!!
In the SkiWelt Hopfgarten, winter sports enthusiasts now travel even more quickly and safely.
The new Schernthann lift in Hopfgarten will commence operations just in time for the start of the season in December 2015. Thanks to the exclusive DirectDrive system, the automatic lifting platform and heated seats, the 6-person chairlift, developed by LEITNER ropeways, features extra comfort and safety for skiers big and small.
The new lift will start operating in December 2015 and boasts not only highly technical innovations but also numerous additional comforts for passengers. The subtle colour scheme with blue hoods and luxury upholstery further enhances the ski resort visually. For authorised officer, Friedl Eberl, the new lift represents an important improvement: “The new lift will raise the quality of the ski area considerably. We are implementing an energy-efficient, child and family-friendly chairlift here. We are looking forward to seeing the new equipment features in use, such as the lifting platform with automatic height recognition and the gearless drive with its clear advantages.”
The lifting platform perfectly adapts to smaller passengers.
The lifting platform will be a definite plus. With it, smaller winter sports fans in particular can travel all the more safely and comfortably: it detects when children want to get on and adjusts automatically to their position. This represents a hugely important innovation right here in Hopfgarten, exemplifying the ski area, with its sweeping slopes, several ski schools and special range of services, as an exceptionally family-friendly resort.
