THE BIG LIFT FOR SKIERS! The Ski-Trac snow deck is a constantly moving lift wanting to transport skiers to the top of its slope. The skier simply remains stationary at the outer edge and is taken back to the top.

 

 

During a one hour cycle the speed of the deck varies over a range of 5 - 30 km/h (3 - 19mph). At the lower speed with deck movement almost unnoticeable, the skier has a 380 metre (1200 ft) slope to descend, differing very little from its alpine counterpart.
