Since the 2015/16 winter season, the German resort of Winterberg has had a new chairlift with monitored and automatically locking restraining bars. During the construction of the new 6-passenger Büre-Herrloh chairlift, Doppelmayr helped the Klante ski lift operating company to optimize passenger flows. The results speak for themselves – the redesign of the bottom station area provides enhanced comfort for the passengers, who benefit from effortless access to the lift. Optimal use has now been made of the bottom station, which despite its small size houses a maintenance platform as well as the carrier parking facility.
As the lift crosses a road and a river in the incoming and outgoing zones of the bottom station, it was not possible to build a tower in this area. The required hold-down sheave assembly was therefore built directly onto the station building with the aid of a beam. A ski jumping hill prevented the location of a tower in the upper section of the line. A long rope span proved to be the optimal solution for crossing the ski jump runout area.
