    • Other name: Bansko-Banderishka Polyana Cabin Ropeway (CRW)
    • PLAN
    • Lift System: Monocable Gondola Detachable with eight seats (8-MGD) (monocable circulating ropeway)
    • Technical Characteristics: It is the second longest passenger lift in Bulgaria - 6233 m. Bansko Gondola is constructed in 2002 by the Austrian company "Doppelmayr", which in the same year became part of the Austrian-Swiss group "Doppelmayr-Garaventa" (Web-site).

Absolute displacement, which overcomes the lift is 597 m. In the medial lift station the cabins are taken by second rope, so the passengers do not descend to take the other lift. Here the doors open automatically and those who like may go up or down. The design speed is 6 m/sec., but the real is variable, as the speed increases and decreases due to technical reasons. Total average trip lasts about 25 minutes. The length of the lift from the lower to the middle station is 3318 m., and from the middle to upper station - 2915 m. (Total: 6233 m.). Lift capacity is 2000 persons per hour as each cabin has a capacity of 8 people or 640 kg. The main purpose of the gondola during the ski season is to serve the ski runs in the area by transport skiers to the lower station of the lifts Kolarski and Banderitsa-1
