Since the 2016/17 winter season, the new 8-seater chairlift on the Kitzsteinhorn has been carrying around 3,000 guests an hour to an elevation of 2,775 m, where they can look forward to abundant snow and a choice of many glacier ski trails. The Schmiedinger lift is the highest chairlift in Salzburg and was completed in record time despite the high alpine conditions. The planning approval process, the building construction and civil engineering works plus the complete installation and commissioning were carried out within a period of just ten months. This called for outstanding collaboration between all the companies involved in the construction and the relevant authorities. In addition to a compact top station and a bottom station with integrated carrier parking, the chairlift is equipped with a Doppelmayr Sector Drive (DSD) for quiet, low maintenance operation. The new comfort suspension for the chairs along with the bubbles ensures a top ride experience.
