I’m not going to pretend like I know a lot about ski lifts, but I certainly know enough information to be content.
Did I used to think as a kid that every chair moved along the cable with its own individual motor? Well, yes, but I’ve come a long way since I was just a big-headed kid from a sleepy town in flat Delaware.
This video shows a unique surface-lift in Switzerland that is able to turn multiple directions using a simple, yet genius, design.
The creator does an excellent job of breaking down the technical terms in an approachable and understandable way for an idiot like me.
You can skip ahead to the 5:30 mark of the video if you want to see just the information about the lift, but the minutes leading up provide excellent insight as to why this particular lift is so incredible.
