“I’m a person like everyone you know. I want to be free. I don’t feel handicapped. All the obstacles handicap me.” – Edith Wolf, Paralympian
Measured by laser, this new lift in Switzerland adjusts to people based on height.
For those in wheelchairs, the chairlift provides unprecedented access and serves as an example for the rest of ski areas when it comes to offering ease of access for those with disabilities.
“A size recognition control system lifts small children and monoskiers to the correct seat height to easily load onto the chair. An automatic locking clip allows the special skiers to use the chair lift by themselves.”
