It might look like a giant Slinky but the transparent tube set to land at The Remarkables skifield in Queenstown is actually a pioneering conveyor lift. 

En route from Germany, it is set to become the first enclosed double conveyor in New Zealand when it arrives in time for the new ski season starting June 10.

The double conveyor will get skiers up the learner slopes quicker than ever, maximising downhill gliding time. 

The double conveyor gets skiers up the mountain quickly without obstructing their views.
