Maloja (CH): Winter fun with the Mega Comfort Star and Snow-tubing
A Sunkid-Borer Mega Comfort Star and a snow-tubing facility enhance the ski lifts on the Maloja Pass.
Thanks to its favorable geographic location, the Maloja Pass, part of the Engadin - St. Moritz ski area, is one of the most snow-reliable and at the same time most sunny regions in Switzerland. Amidst an abundance of natural snow, winter sports enthusiasts not only have winter hiking trails and cross-country ski trails at their disposal, but also in addition to the snow-tubing facility, a newly built Mega-Comfort Star T-Lift by Sunkid-Borer with variable height adjustment.
The easy and safe use of the T-lifts designated as Mega Comfort Star wins passengers over during their first ascent. Yet operators also benefit from the great advantages of the new Mega Comfort Star. Both stations can be lifted by up to approx. 16 ft (5 meters) using motor power. Therefore, the lift track can be prepared with slope equipment with no problem and the cable height can be adapted to the corresponding snow depth. With the Sunkid Mega Comfort Star, powered by a 11 kW motor, it is possible to transport up to 720 passengers per hour at a speed of 0.1 to 1.8 meters per second. Aside from the mountain and valley stations, the lift needs no additional supports; it can extend over a length of up to approx. 1148 ft (350 meters) and be applied to an incline of up to 40%.
The Sunkid Mega-Comfort-Star glistens moreover with additional features such as the innovative platter which substantially increases the comfort of passengers. Thanks to the rotating bearing of the bar on the steel cable it can adapt perfectly to the height of the passenger or cable height. There are thus various possibilities for winter sports enthusiasts to use the bar, be it with the platter placed between the legs, as a handle on the side or as anchor for the back.
