The first height-adjustable small ski lift in South Tyrol needs only one attendant
Nova Levante (Italy): Two Sunkid conveyor belts and a Sunkid Mega Comfort Star provide access to the new Nani-Land.
A new highlight at the Catinaccio ski resort has been impressing young skiers and their families since the beginning of this year's winter season: the new kids’ area near the Frommer Alm at the top station of the Nova Levante gondola lift. This can be accessed with two Sunkid conveyor belts and the first height-adjustable small ski lift in South Tyrol. In addition, it is the first time ever in Italy that in accordance with regulatory approvals, surveillance of the Sunkid Mega Comfort Star will be ensured by one person only.
The new Sunkid Mega Comfort Star has a length of 360 feet (110 meters) and handles a height difference of 59 feet (18 meters).
The easy and safe use of the T-lifts designated as Mega Comfort Star wins passengers over during their first ascent. Yet operators also benefit from the great advantages of the new Mega Comfort Star. Both stations can be lifted by up to approx. 16 ft (5 meters) using motor power. Therefore, the lift track can be prepared with slope equipment with no problem and the cable height can be adapted to the corresponding snow depth.
With the Sunkid Mega Comfort Star, powered by a 11 kW motor, it is possible to transport up to 720 passengers per hour at a speed of 0.1 to 1.8 meters per second. Aside from the mountain and valley stations, the lift needs no additional supports; it can extend over a length of up to approx. 1148 ft (350 meters) and be applied to an incline of up to 40%.
The Sunkid Mega-Comfort-Star glistens moreover with additional features such as the innovative platter which substantially increases the comfort of passengers. Thanks to the rotating bearing of the bar on the steel cable it can adapt perfectly to the height of the passenger or cable height. There are thus various possibilities for winter sports enthusiasts to use the bar, be it with the platter placed between the legs, as a handle on the side or as anchor for the back.
