Kylie and Robbie grace new Tirolean chairlift

Kylie Minogue, Robbie Williams, Lionel Richie and Elton John are just some of the celebrities depicted on a new luxury chairlift in the Tirolean resort of Ischgl this season.

Each one of the luxury six-seater chairs on the €12 million Palinkopf chair is dedicated to one of the top international stars who have played the village's Top Of The Mountain concerts.

The lift also has padded and heated upholstered seats, weather hoods and safety lock bars.

It takes just under six minutes to travel 1,577 metres and ascend 440 metres to the Palinkopf mountain at 2,853m and has the capacity to carry 2,800 people per hour.

The old four-seater lift, which has operated for 20 years, has been sold on to a resort in Finland.
