The cable car operator places the baby carrier on the seat behind you. The operator will tell you whether the carrier needs to be folded or it can be loaded without folding.

Your carrier is transported free of charge at all SkiResort lifts and cablecars. It is placed separately on a free seat. Some carriers do not need to be folded, others do. The folding is the same just like when you place it in your car. You will be adviced by our cablecar operators, whether the carrier needs to be folded or not.
