Geocache Description:

Gondolska žičnica Pohorska vzpenjača s spodnjo postajo le cca. 5 km izven starega mestnega jedra Maribora povezuje mestni vrvež s spokojnim, a življenja polnim Mariborskim Pohorjem.

Nekaj malega zgodovine in tehničnih podatkov stare gondolske žičnice. Postavljena je bila leta 1957, proizvajalec je bilo podjetje Metalna v sodelovanju z avstrijskim podjetjem Girak. Dolžina vzpenjače je bila 2540 metrov, višinska razlika med spodnjo in zgornjo postajo pa 725m. Na uro je lahko prepeljala 530 oseb, vožnja je trajala 15 minut.

Dopoldne 19. julija 2009 se je pripetila nezgoda, pod težo časa je klonil osmi steber, s tem je bilo konec stare Pohorske vzpenjače.

Nova Pohorska vzpenjača je začela delovati 23. decembra 2009. Enovrvna krožno-kabinska žičnica ima trenutno 32 osemsedežnih kabin, prepelje pa lahko 1940 potnikov na uro. Dolžina vzpenjače je sedaj 2502 metrov, višinska razlika 714 metrov, čas vožnje slabih 7 minut. Ko bo projekt v celoti zaključen, bo zmogljivost vzpenjače 2400 potnikov na uro v skupaj 82 gondolah.
