Sunkid Wonder Carpet transports passengers to the Schwemmalm ski facilities
111m-long Sunkid conveyor belt with gallery enclosure in Ultimo
The Sunkid Wonder Carpet is primarily used by beginner skiers and snowboarders. The first time on skis or a board is by far the most difficult, so beginners benefit greatly from a simple and easy ascent aid. For this reason, the Schwemmalm managers decided on a Sunkid conveyor belt.
The 111m-long Wonder Carpet is powered by an 18.5 kW drive motor, reaching a theoretical capacity of 1400 skiers or snowboarders per hour. The owners of “Ultner Ski- und Sesselbahnen GmbH” also decided on a Sunkid gallery enclosure to cover the conveyor belt. The Sunkid gallery enclosure can be installed for each model of Sunkid Wonder Carpet, and can also be retrofitted to all existing systems. The time-tested modular construction guarantees that concave and convex landscapes pose no problem for the Sunkid Gallery. This special feature not only adds to the visual appeal of the system in every ski area, but also presents numerous advantages for the operation and maintenance of the Sunkid Wonder Carpet. Passengers are protected from snow, rain, wind, and cold. For the operators, it becomes unnecessary to clean away snow before starting up the system.
From mountain lodge restaurant to upper station
From the mountain lodge restaurant to the upper station
For guests to the Schwemmalm facilities, not only the modern lift installations, but also the excellent cuisine, delight and thrill. Until now, though, visitors to the Schwemmalm mountain lodge restaurant could only return to the upper lift station of the gondola on foot. Now, thanks to the new Wonder Carpet, guests can quickly transit between the two. This transport solution has been gratefully received by guests, and the new service has increased customer satisfaction.
Using the 111m-long Sunkid Wonder Carpet, two projects were successfully completed with one innovative solution. Early responses to the new installations have been overwhelmingly positive – whether young or old, all guests were thrilled to be able to use the new Sunkid conveyor belt.
