The Wetterwandeck lift is an exceptional project in many respects. As operations manager Martin Hurm from Bayerische Zugspitzbahn Bergbahn AG recalls: "The materials and equipment first had to be transported up the mountain with the cog railway and then by snowcats and construction vehicles to the construction site." This was done mostly at night to avoid interrupting passenger services. And for the actual ropeway installation, a material ropeway was erected along the new lift line. His conclusion: "The collaboration with Doppelmayr was outstanding, particularly when you consider the huge logistical challenges."
Another highlight: This lift is Germany’s first newbuild 6-seater bubble with automatic bubble locking on occupied chairs. The system also recognizes if a passenger is likely to become trapped and then releases the closing mechanism.
