The Easy Rider is the first chairlift in the Porters ski area in Springfield, New Zealand, and a new highlight for the resort’s winter sports enthusiasts. It replaces a surface lift, and therefore offers greater ride comfort as well as doubling the hourly transport capacity. In view of the fact that the lift alignment passes through avalanche-prone terrain, Doppelmayr designed special towers which have been positioned outside of the hazard area. The new electric drive is housed in the top station. Doppelmayr was responsible for planning and installing the lift, and supplied the entire ropeway equipment.
