A barrier-free ride to Innsbruck’s local mountain. Following in the tracks of the Olympic Games. Cutting-edge technology meets elegant architecture. The new Patscherkofel lift makes Innsbruck’s local mountain accessible to all. It brings skiers and snowboarders straight to the slopes in the winter and summer guests can enjoy the trip up the mountain while looking forward to the hiking trails that await them. This establishes Patscher kofel Mountain all the more as a year-round recreation area for the Tyrolean capital. It is also well-known for its particular wind conditions as high winds are quite common on the Patscherkofel. The new lift was designed with some special features to address this fact. The low ropeline with continuous rope position detection (RPD), additional ballast weights in the cabin floors to lower the center of gravity, and the capability to operate each of the two sections individually ensure safe operations and high availability. The latest D-Line ropeway technology also promises top comfort for passengers. 57
