|Inclined length||710.0 m|
The operating company, Bergbahnen Saalbach Hinterglemm GmbH, opted for a new chairlift offering 3,600 passengers an hour and 5 meters a second to replace their old fixed-grip quad installation. Despite the extension of the lift line to a length of 710 meters, trip time has been virtually halved thanks to the higher speeds achieved by the new system. The Poltenbahn is equipped with Doppelmayr’s child-friendly chair model, the CS10, The restraining bars close and lock automatically before the chairs have even left the station and do not open again until they have reached the top. The opening operation is also automatic. In combination with the individual footrests, these features help to prevent children from slipping out of their seats. For top ride comfort, all 42 chairs are also fitted with heated seats and blue bubbles.
