“The idea of creating a kids' area at Hollhausmulde had been under consideration for many years,” Manager of the Tauplitzer Lifts, Mr. Rudolf Huber Eng., explains. “The area is well protected even in bad weather, so children will not get lost. In addition, it is the “hub” of the resort and four lifts lead from there to the ski areas. Furthermore, the ski school is also located there. With up to 150 kids per day, a suitable climbing aid was more than welcome”.
Such a solution was found very quickly in the Sunkid conveyor belt. Thanks to long time cooperation in the area of ski lifts, the Tauplitzer Lifts put their trust in the quality and customer service of Sunkid when selecting a conveyor belt supplier as well. Yet not only was the conveyor belt a welcome solution, but the EVOLUS Gallery as well fulfilled its purpose to the fullest satisfaction of the operator. With snowfall amounts of 12 to 15 meters over winter, staff at Tauplitzer Lifts appreciated the possibility to “easily close down” the Gallery in the evening and put it in operation relatively quickly in the morning.

“It was in any case the right idea to extend the roofing over the entry and exit points. That saved us a lot of time during operation. In addition, the roofing also protects passengers from wind and snow,” Manager Huber adds. The exit area of the EVOLUS Gallery was additionally supplemented by a side exit, which along with a handrail makes getting off the conveyor easier for pedestrians and snowboarders. Unintended shutdowns of the conveyor belt were reduced to a minimum in the process.
Manager Rudolf Huber Eng., Manager of Tauplitzer Lifts: “The conveyor belt offers a playful transportation solution for kids as well as adults and can as such be only highly recommended”.
