The Patscherkofel lift is a product of the next ropeway generation from Doppelmayr: the D-Line. This puts the Patscherkofel at the cutting edge of technology. No matter whether they are wearing hiking boots or skis, or using a wheelchair or baby stroller, local residents and tourists alike can all enjoy comfortable access to the mountain peak thanks to the new Patscherkofel lift and its barrier-free design. In the winter, the two-section lift will carry passengers directly to a wide range of ski trails and, in the summer, to the hiking paths. This establishes Patscherkofel Mountain all the more as a year-round recreation area for the Tyrolean capital. It is also well-known for its particular wind conditions as high winds are quite common on the Patscherkofel. The new lift was designed with some special features to address this fact. The low ropeline with continuous rope position detection (RPD), additional ballast weights in the cabin floors to lower the center of gravity, and the capability to operate each of
the two sections individually ensure safe operations and high availability.
