The new 6-seater chairlift Waidoffen is the first D-Line chairlift worldwide and incorporates state-of-the-art engineering features. Thanks to the latest technology from Doppelmayr, it meets the highest demands in terms of safety and design, and represents a quantum leap in comfort. The ergonomically formed individual seats, which also offer greater width, are particularly comfortable as well as having integrated heating. The bubbles ensure a pleasant journey even in wind and weather. Waidoffen replaces a quad chairlift and now carries one third more passengers in half the time. Once they arrive at the top at 2,300 m, all winter sports enthusiasts – whether beginners, leisurely or athletic skiers – can look forward to idyllic trails.
The top station is equipped with highly efficient photovoltaic elements that are directly integrated into the station roof. The centerpiece of the installation – the new Doppelmayr Direct Drive – is also unrivaled in terms of energy efficiency. In addition, it is particularly low on noise and vibration. Also in operation for the first time in Hochfügen is the new Doppelmayr control system, Doppelmayr Connect. Needless to say, this modern ropeway is cutting edge where safety is concerned. The restraining bars on the chairs close and lock automatically once the passengers are on board, and are only released and opened again on arrival at the top station. A loading conveyor which can be raised or lowered in the boarding area makes it easier for younger guests to take their places. This means that children can board by themselves, like the “grown-ups”.
