Remarkables set to install high-tech new ski lift ahead of new season
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.
Made from see-through Perspex, the the lift keeps riders protected from the elements without blocking their view of the action.
