Ischgl / Austria: New Palinkopf D1 skilift


The Palinkopf tow lift in the Ischgl/Samnaum ski area began operation in 1973 and opened up some highly prized ski runs in the Palinkopf area. Then in 1985 this lift was replaced by a double-seat lift, which was then replaced in 1996/97 by a flexible four-seat lift. In the summer of 2017, after 20 years of operation and moving about 12 million skiers, this unit was replaced by the newest-generation six-seat lift manufactured by Doppelmayr Corp. (cable lift engineering).

The valley station at 2,413 m is located near the Schwarzwand restaurant in the middle of the Silvretta Arena; the 16 steel tube towers pass over one of the most lovely and highest sites in the ski area the Palinkopf (2,853 m).

Everything on the Palinkopf lift was fully redesigned from the entryway to the comfortable seat upholstery.
The unique back sides of the seats are especially interesting; they depict the stars from previous Top of the Mountain concerts.

The new facility is packed full of the latest technology. The D-line cable system incorporates 205 new features, 31 innovations and 14 patents.

Great convenience for users and smooth operation make the new Palinkopf lift a first-class unit. The new high-tech cable lift incorporates a number of noticeable improvements:

Individual, ergonomically designed seats

520 mm-wide, heated seats

Optimized safety design

Convenient safety lock bar

The next generation cable lift is very low in noise and vibration all to ensure maximum comfort and convenience for our guests
