Motorized Ski Lift




Simple and easy to build Ski Lift

*This is a basic, simple and really easy to build ski lift.
*It can be mounted as a chair lift for "hills" and it also works great on flat grounds.
*It can be used as a transportation system in your Lego City.
*It uses a single M-Motor geared down 24:1

Some Information: I used a string that is a little bit elastic. There are two types of knots that I tried for securing the chairs. Both perform different and if you are interested in building this, you may want to try both and see which one suits your setup best.

I don't recommend to tight the string too much, but I think that depends on the kind of string you are using. I guess you have to experiment.

BTW, this ski lift can be mounted on a flat surface, too. There are instructions for both assemblies: Flat and inclined ground.

    Thanks for the great design.  I made some minor modifications to the seats and guide wheels.  I also added platforms, signs and towers to create the Sky Rider (see photos).  This is a great addition to my ever growing amusement park. Thanks again.

      The seats look more comfortable now. I saw that you added a tower, also. Your parks looks nice. Thank you for posting the pictures.

    I have just built this, looks great. Now waiting for some string and a battery pack to arrive! On page 63 of the instructions there is a white piece that looks a bit like a shark fin. Its not on the inventory what is it?

      Hello. I'm sorry for the late response. I was on vacation.It's this piece.It's kind of an important piece because it aligns the string. I just added it to Rebrickable. It's already in the PDF.
      Thank you for your comment.

    Hi all , maybe i will do it... just want to know one additional info : are the pieces for the 'legs' included in the list ? If not have you a part list?

      Hello.I guess you are referring to the columns, they are part 95347 (Support 2 x 2 x 10).They are there just for display purposes. With that configuration those columns won’t be able to hold the station in place, they will collapse as soon as you apply tension to the string.

    I wonder if Braided Fishing Line would work better than string.  It's very strong and durable.

      Now that you pointed out, I not sure what I use it's called "string". I use this:
      The diameter is 0.6 mm
      I googled Braided Fishing Line and I think it'd work well in this model. It says the diameter is 1,25mm. That is perfect for the tire "grip".
      I guess It won't slip since its surface is not smooth. But I can't try since I don't have any.

      It's very fun to build. Are you going to build it? If you do, please post some pics. Finding the correct string and tension it's a little
