Hancock Beginner skiers and snowboarders at the Middlebury College Snow Bowl, located on Route 125 in Hancock, will receive a magic carpet treatment this winter with a ride on the unique SunKid Wonder Carpet conveyor lift system.
Owning over 70 percent of the global market in ski resort passenger conveyance on conveyor belts, the Austria-based SunKid Skilift-Fördertechnik GmbH company—inventors of the conveyor—installed the unique people-mover belt at the Addison County ski spot just in time for the arrival of plenty of snow which fell between Christmas and New Year’s day.
According to SunKid’s business director Emanuel Wohlfarter, the SunKid unit is a perfect addition to the Middlebury College Snow Bowl.
“Both environmental protection and utmost energy efficiency have always been at the center of our development efforts and the college’s,” Wohlfarter said.
In addition to luring local skiers and snowboarders, the college-owned and operated Snow Bowl will be in th national spotlight when it hosts the 2013 NCCA Alpine-Nordic Skiing Championship March 6-9. The event will be broadcast on television and streamed on the Internet; details will be announced next month.
