WATCH: How Gondolas/High-Speed Lifts Work


We’ve all ridden a detachable/high-speed chairlift or a gondola at this point, right?

The technology has been around for decades, and nearly every new lift constructed uses the feature to ferry skiers uphill at a much quicker pace.

You probably know that the cars slow-down in the loading and unloading terminals, but do you know how it works?

Check out the awesome video below created by YouTube channel
3D Living Studio explaining the process using 3D animation:


Pretty neat, right? I’ve ridden these types of lifts hundreds, if not thousands of times, but I’ve never actually taken the time to learn how they work.

I feel pretty good about myself after watching that video, how about you? I can’t wait to brag about my new knowledge to the next 500 skiers I meet.

They’re gonna love it.
