Detachable Chairlift The High Speed chairlift, also, we know it like Detachable chairlift is a special type of aerial lift, which, like a chairlift, consists of numerous chairs that are connected to a constantly moving steel cable that is strung between two terminals over intermediate towers.

They are now commonplace at even the smallest of ski areas. The difference between one detachable chairlift and Standard chairlift is the speed. Detachable chairlifts are far faster than their fixed-grip brethren.

Because the cable is usually moving faster than most skiers would be able to get on and off the chair, the chairs must be taken off the cable and slowed down substantially to allow patrons to get on and off.
