Mayrhofen in Tyrol's Ziller Valley celebrated the installation of a very special kind of ropeway with the inauguration of the combination lift up to the Penken. The lift has a capacity of 3,900 p/h and offers skiers the choice of either 8-seater chairs or 10-passenger gondolas. It starts at the top station of the 2S bicable Penken lift which acts as a feeder in the central area of the resort. As the carriers can be sent into circulation in random order, any mix of chairs and gondolas is possible to suit the season, the weather conditions and the preferences of guests. World first: The use of two separate rope loops for chairs and gondolas means that 8-seater chairs and 10-passenger gondolas can be safely deployed without any problem. The loading and unloading areas for chairs and gondolas have been appropriately separated.
