– The water ski lift –
A circuit with a length of 480m.
The tow rope is stretched to 10 meters in height which is stretched between 5 pylons.
The average cable speed for skiing is 30 km / h.
Departures are managed by an operator, a state graduate.
Each skier can do as many laps as he wants.
To stop, he just drops his rope just before the starting place.
The rope will be retrieved by the operator who will immediately use the catchy (device where the skier’s rope is hooked onto the circuit) and released to start another skier.
There are seven catchy on the circuit separate from a distance of 70m.
Every 10 seconds, an eye catcher passes in front of the operator who can send a skier if it is free.
This tool allows us to practice a lot of people at a time.
Thirty skiers on the starting pontoon, can practice at the same time, without having too much waiting in the line of people who leads to the departure.
