*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.

Excellent! It looks great, for one, but it works as well! Good job! (I've noticed that the chair tilts when it hits the drive wheel at the top, though. Is there a way to fix that?)
Hello. There are two types of knots, one of them prevents the chair to tilt.
Look at the video at 4:00 The problem is that the knot that works fine at the drive wheel introduces some vibration when riding over the little grey wheels.
