The rope lift brings unexpected benefits
The Sunkid SwissCord stands out with its smooth height adjustment and the option of having it approved for operation without dedicated supervisors
As a practical and economically interesting lift version, the Sunkid SwissCord is mainly used as a connection, access and return lift. In addition to the possibility of indirect supervision by height adjustment, it is characterised by vertical rope return and support-free overall length of up to 300 meters (984 ft) each.
The Cauterêts (FRA) skiing area is convinced of the Sunkid SwissCord as well. Looking for a suitable climbing aid to close a gap of 60 meters (197 ft) at an inclination of 8%, the operators found the Sunkid SwissCord. Philippe Dupla, the manager of operations, specifies: "With the two electrically height-adjustable stations, this lift completely matches our expectations. It was often snowing a lot this winter. The height adjustment makes it possible to adapt the rope height to the amount of snow as well, while also making it easier for the snow groomer to prepare the lift track. We are very happy with the SwissCord to date."
