Enjoying the sunny side. The Schmittenhöhe ski resort in the province of Salzburg can now boast a world first: a fixed-grip quad chairlift with special restraining bar locks and individual footrests that started up in December 2012. A loading carpet conveys the skier to the chair load elevator platform. At the barrier, the skier‘s height is electronically detected and the elevator platform is raised and angled so that the skier can take up the correct seated position with ease. Once the skier is sitting comfortably, the restraining bar is closed manually and then automatically locked. The lock is not released until arrival in the top station – automatically and accompanied by a well audible signal. The restraining bar can then be opened again by hand. The utmost in comfort and safety.
