The new Waidoffen 6-seater chairlift is the first D-Line chairlift worldwide and incorporates state-of-the-art engineering features. Thanks to the latest technology from Doppelmayr, it meets the highest demands in terms of safety and design and represents a quantum leap in comfort. The individual ergonomically shaped seats, which also offer extra width, are particularly comfortable and feature integrated heating. The bubbles ensure a pleasant journey even in wind and bad weather. The Waidoffen chairlift is a replacement for a quad and now carries one third more passengers in half the time. Once they arrive at the top at 2,300 m, all skiers and snowboarders – whether beginners or experts – can look forward to idyllic trails.
Sustainability on the mountain
The top station is equipped with highly efficient photovoltaic panels that are integrated into the station roof. The centerpiece of the installation – the new Doppelmayr Direct Drive – is also unrivaled in terms of energy efficiency. In addition, it is particularly low on noise and vibration. Also in operation for the first time in Hochfügen is Doppelmayr Connect, the new Doppelmayr control system. Needless to say, this modern ropeway is cutting edge where safety is concerned. The restraining bars on the chairs close and lock automatically once the passengers are on board, and are only released and opened again on arrival at the top station. A loading conveyor, which can be raised or lowered in the boarding area, makes it easier for children to use the lift. Above all, they can board by themselves – just like the “grown-ups”.
Waidoffen has everything the heart desires. For skiers of all ages and for the operating team, the D-Line chairlift is a genuine highlight.
