Surface lift adapted for today’s user
Today’s T-bar lift looks almost the same as when it was launched in 1938, even though a lot has happened in the ski and mountain industries. New equipment has developed without any major adjustment to the lift. Snowboard, sit ski and downhill biking are just some examples of the evolution that demands new seating positions. It’s also very common for families to spend their holidays in the mountains nowadays. These are users whit a lot of different needs, for example how to ride with different heights, different gears and different skill level.
My degree work has focused on developing a new surface lift that is adapted to the different needs of today’s users. A surface lift that makes the ride a nice experience that ends with a big smile and a lot of energy to spend on the way down.
This report describes in detail how I through the design process and in close contact with users and experts came up with a realistic concept that will satisfy both the manufacturers, producers and the users.
