There are questions which skiers have probably asked themselves: what happens if there’s a sudden power cut and the lift comes to a standstill? How long would I have to endure on the lift? But above all: how do I get down? One thing’s for sure: a complete lift standstill is a very abstract exercise scenario. All lifts in the Snow Space Salzburg area are equipped with separate emergency power, operated by a diesel power engine, so that in the event of a technical fault the lift can be operated until all passengers have disembarked. However, an exercise as follows must be undertaken by law for safety reasons once a year. I’ll take you through the smooth running of the operation.
