Launch of new high speed gondola

Posted by Nevis Range on 1st April, 2014

New gondola

Nevis Range today launched it’s new high end and luxury ‘supergondola’ equipped with many new and novel friendly features and big benefits.

The all-year-round entertainments system and new catering facilities, such as freshly cooked while you wait pizzas – the new innovative service offered by the Pinemarten team on Tuesdays, will provide customers with more to see and do as they take the journey up the hill.  It also boasts in car live snowire TV, reporting the most technological up to date and correct weather information as it happens, as well as auto wind screen wipers to enhance the view out on rainy days.

But perhaps it’s best feature is it’s ability to overtake slower gondolas, resulting in a much faster journey time of around 5-7 minutes, a vast improvement on the typical 12-15 minutes trip.  This feature has been specifically desgined with the resorts’ snowsports and downhill mountain biker customers in mind, to ensure even more time on the pistes and off the trails.

The Marketing Manager commented “We know how important it is to keep our customers happy and we’ve at last been able to provide this new gondola service which we know will exceed our customers expectations. Our award winning engineering and ergonomics department has worked extremely hard, and the overtaking multi locking mechanism which is an industry first just goes to demonstrate this. She added “the only thing we’ve yet to complete is our underlying anticipatory weather strategy, but we’re already a top technical team in place working hard on that.”
