Surface Ski Lifts
An ideal solution for uphill transportation for skiers in difficult terrain and where aerial ropeways are not reliable.
Leitner-Poma manufactures Poma platters, T-bar ski lifts, and rope tows. These solutions can provide uphill transportation for skiers in difficult terrain and where aerial ropeways are not as reliable due to wind and other environmental conditions.
The Leitner-Poma fixed grip surface lift is the ideal lift for ski race training areas, ski school areas, terrain parks and short length transportation. The Leitner-Poma T-bar is the ideal lift for areas which experience great variations in snow depth, as on slopes with relatively irregular profiles. Normally equipped with T-bar seats, a platter seat alternative is also available. Typically, the speed of the line is 650 ft/min. The Leitner-Poma detachable grip surface lifts offer operating speeds from 1.4 meters per second to more than 4 meters per second (250-775 ft/min).
Detachable grip ski lifts can be installed on lengths up to 6000 ft and angles of 32 degrees along the alignment. The Leitner – Poma Telecorde rope tow is the ideal lift for beginner areas, terrain parks, and short distance transportation of less than 400 ft. The rope tow will transport people at approximately 325 ft/min.
