Weekly Roundup: New Chairlifts for Trio of Vail Resorts Properties

Post by gondola-project

    • Taos Ski Valley in New Mexico plans for upgraded lifts for 2023/2024 season. Lift 4 will be upgraded from a fixed-grip lift to a Leitner-Poma high-speed detachable quad; concrete pours have been completed for this lift, and the next step will be installing lift towers. Pioneers lift will also be upgraded and eventually replaced by a fixed-grip triple chairlift; additional grading will take place for the ski runs. The old Pioneer chairs were sold to help give kids scholarships for the mountain.
    • While Whistler Blackcomb and Hunter Mountain upgrade lifts, Park City Mountain adds a brand-new gondola. Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia increases its capacity by replacing its four-person high-speed lift with a new six-person high-speed lift. Hunter Mountain in New York is also replacing their four-person high-speed lift with a similar speed, higher capacity system and will also be relocating their Broadway lift to increase capacity to learning terrain. Park City Mountain in Utah is replacing the Sunrise lift with a 10-person gondola for 2025 which will increase access to the mountain.
