The first impression counts: Long and icy paths. Ski equipment in one hand, children in the other.
Almost without exception, all ski resorts strive to offer their guests the highest level of comfort. WLAN, heated chairlifts, comfortable gondolas and perfectly groomed slopes are nowadays indispensable. The guest can look forward to a wide range of amenities. But often the first joy of an unforgettable ski day already ends at the parking lot. Steep, often icy paths, ski equipment in one child's hand in the other, passing cars and all this in ski boots unsuitable for walking. The first impression counts
That this does not have to be shows since beginning of this winter season the Tofana world cup - and olympia region in Cortina d'Ampezzo (ITA). Guests reach the Moving Carpet at the lower end of the parking lot via just a few steps and ride comfortably in the direction of the valley station. After getting off, only a few more meters wait without any major effort or stress until guests can reach the ticket office and the first lift. If they would like to continue to the next lift after solving the card, then a Moving Carpet is again available to the winter sports enthusiasts, with which they can bridge another terrain level.
Tip: With the motorized handrail, Sunkid also offers another feature that is unique on the market to make the way from the icy parking lot to skiing fun even more pleasant and comfortable.
This example is just one of the many possible uses of the Moving Carpet as a means of transport around the ski area. The same applies to the route from the village center to the cable car, or also for the way home back to the hotel. The Moving Carpet, which can be used all year round, is energy-efficient and can be equipped with an automatic start-stop system. It only starts when people approach it. This saves the customer operating costs and guests can ride up at any time. Waiting for the shuttle bus is no longer necessary.
The weather-independent Moving Carpet does not necessarily have to be located in the meadow, but can also be embedded in the asphalt/ground as a permanent installation for year-round use.

- Bridge crossing
