Innsbruck/Igls is the only place in the world where the Olympic flame for Winter Games has already been lit three times. Just a few weeks ago, the alpine competitions of the first-ever Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) were held there. But even every Olympic champion starts from scratch in skiing. As a gap between the Moving Carpet for beginners and various "big" stirrup lifts for advanced skiers, Patscherkofel mastermind Peter Schröcksnadel has therefore been offering his guests a Sunkid Comfort Star since the beginning of this winter.


While the Moving Carpet does not pose any major problems for beginners, the subsequent transfer to various stirrup lifts can have its pitfalls. In order to ensure that the individual skill levels can be interlinked as smoothly as possible, Sunkid offers the "Comfort Star" small ski lift. This small ski lift offers the advantage that it introduces beginners to ski lifts in a simple way. And that up to 300 meters without support and without a fixed foundation.
