Ex nihilo nihil fit - Nothing comes from nothing
Sunkid comes to the aid of the "un-conquered" Galsterberg
True to the Latin saying, the managers of Galsterberg Ski Resort have created a new offering, the "Galsti Land”. To create a unique and sustainably successful position for themselves apart from the other ski resorts in the Schladming-Dachstein region, the managers of Galsterberg relied not on the effects of a magic potion, but rather utilized initiative, pioneer spirit, and idealism.
"From an initial idea came a final, workable project concept. Incorporating the well-known story of the Gallic resistance to the Romans, we positioned the now "un-bowed" ski resort Galsterberg in a unique niche vis-à-vis the overwhelmingly dominant ski resorts in the Schladming – Dachstein region“, explains director Peter Weichbold. This theme was followed consistently, and achieved its fulfillment with the October, 2009 opening of the "Gallic Ski Village"
The Wonder Carpet installed by Sunkid provides comfortable and easy transport for visitors to the new and interactive skiing experience for young and old. "The Sunkid Wonder Carpet was the only logical choice for passenger transport to Galsti Land", says Weichbold.
Wondercarpet substitutes magic potion
The 81 meter-long and 60cm-wide conveyor belt, using the tried and true "Blue-Eye” surfacing, is powered by an 11kW motor. In addition, the conveyor boasts an external terminal in the lift control room. Monitoring is carried out via a direct view of the conveyor belt. An excellent degree of protection is provided by a combination of safety devices.
The Sunkid Wonder Carpet allows visitors to reach the unique attractions on the slopes not just with skis strapped on, but also with normal shoes.
The success of the concept now underscores the managers' foresight that a smaller ski resort can prevail when using the right strategy. The story bears out the saying: "Faber est suae quisque fortunae." – Every man is the architect of his own fortune. !
