Influence of Modern Cableways on the Development of Mountain Tourist Centres

The problem of constructing advanced technology cableways and their impact on the operation and development of cableway companies are the topics of this paper. Cableways with detachable grips allow for faster passenger transport: they can carry more passengers over longer distances. These improvements have recently been seen in the chairlifts that carry skiers. The chairlifts with detachable grips allow ski slopes to be spread over a wider area, which in turn affects the development of mountain tourist centers. The detachable-grip lifts require more knowledge to operate and have higher capital costs, which also impacts mountain tourist centers.
