I’ve seen some pretty weird stuff in my days as a ski blogger, but it’s rare that a video stops me dead in my tracks like the one below.
The video shows a chairlift at the Hörnlebahn in Bad Kohlgrub, Germany that swivels from the middle out as passengers unload. Two lift operators swing the chairs away from the passengers at just the perfect moment.
I can’t stop watching this video… who in their right mind came up with this design? Are there other chairlifts like it? Why? Who? How? So many questions!
I had to learn more about this ski lift oddity, but internet research has proved to be not all that useful. I did find some other pictures and videos of the chair in use, however.
If you have any info on who made this chairlift, how old it is, or any other details please let me know! I’ve never been so interested in a chairlift, and I’d love learn more. 😂
