The operating company, Klosters-Madrisa Bergbahnen AG, is setting new standards with the CS10 chairlift and making the sector sit up and take notice. The 6-seater Schaffürggli chairlift is the first installation in Switzerland with the child-friendly chair model CS10 and is also equipped with bubbles and seat heating. In the Madrisa ski area, it is now possible for one adult to ride on one chair with up to five children with a body height exceeding 90 cm, and ski schools are not the only ones to be impressed. A loading conveyor which can be raised helps skiers to board independently. “In addition, the new lift addresses something which is very close to our hearts – it fully addresses our desire to enable visitors with impaired mobility to enjoy an unforgettable winter sports experience,” explains Hacher Bernet, CEO of Klosters-Madrisa Bergbahnen AG.
Building the new lift proved to be a logistical challenge as there were several projects under construction on Madrisa Mountain at the same time. In addition to the chairlift, the operating company invested in a new snowmaking installation and a new self-service restaurant in summer 2016.
