Sunkid builds a complete children's area in the Thuringian Forest
The municipality of Masserberg is located in the middle of the Thuringian Forest at an altitude of about 600 meters. Driving through the village, it seems quiet and tranquil, especially in winter. No sign suggests that you could be not far from a top snow adventure world. But immediately after the last houses of the village, you reach the Ski Lift Heubach, which not only has the largest fun park north of the Alps, but also a beginners' area completely planned and implemented by Sunkid.
And there, not only all freestyle friends will get their money's worth, but also all beginners, children and families. In the first years, the Ski Lift was operated by the municipality. For ten years now, however, Denis Wagner has been taking on this challenge. As the son of the former lift attendant, this task was more or less already "laid in the cradle" for him. In dedicated cooperation with the mayor of Masserberg, Friedel Hablitzel, approximately € 1.8 million have been invested in the infrastructure of this ski area in recent years. The result can be seen: The passion for skiing or snowboarding gave rise to the idea of creating a somewhat different ski/snowboard school. The fun of "moving in the snow", a quick learning success and of course the safest way possible were the main focus and form the basis for the snow sports school in Heubach.
Sunkid installs three facilities
A Sunkid Moving Carpet with a length of 39m, a 100m Comfort-Star small ski lift for the advanced skiers and a Rotondo carousel for the youngest skiers help to realize these plans. These three Sunkid products provide all the assistance needed to learn to ski quickly and safely, while having a lot of fun. In this project, however, Sunkid's responsibilities were not limited to the delivery and assembly of the products. Sunkid was responsible for the complete conception and planning as well as the implementation of the service chain up to the turnkey handover.
The second mainstay of the Skiarea Heubach is a 600-meter fun park with numerous obstacles and a modern double surface lift. If the natural white should ever fail to appear, six snow cannons are available to provide the necessary quantity and quality of snow. The now high profile of the Masserberg/Heubach ski arena and the success that goes with it impressively prove that altitude meters and kilometers of piste are not the measure of all things. The skier also appreciates the "Bürgermeisterlift" when it is managed with a lot of commitment and determination and offers a wide range of facilities.
