In November 2016, the world’s first six-seater detachable chair lift (6-CLD) called “Waidoffen” will replace the 4-seater “Hochfügen 2000” chair lift. The wider exit path and the gentle gradient in the exit area make it easier for beginners in particular to have an enjoyable start to their skiing experience. Overall, the new chair lift offers ergonomic individual seats, an integrated seat heating system, ultra-light weather-proof covers and the new “Auto-lock” child safety locks, providing a high level of safety and comfort.
