Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Gondola question

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
It's summer. I can ask silly questions.
How hard is it to add a midstation to a pre-existing gondola?

I ask because a fairly new one at Winklmoos in Germany always bugs me.
It goes up one side of a hill and down the other to deliver you to the bottom chair of the main ski area.
The hill is very skiable and you'd end up at another lift if you could ski down it from the top of the hill.

I do realise its never going to happen!

I think the biggest problem will be persuading them to let you, or, alternatively, distracting them for long enough.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

How hard - not that hard really.
How cheap - really rather expensive, which is why you only usually get a middle station when a gondola needs to change direction, so is actually two gondolas with a system to take the cars off one cable and transfer them to the other. It would be possible to have a middle station on a stright cable too, but if you think about it cost-wise the physical stations are one of the most expensive parts of the build, so you'd be talking about 30% more with a middle station, and for a single run that's never going to add up. If it could be used to open up a new area of the mountain then some resorts would consider it, but it would be very much down to the resort in question.
