Game-changing lift upgrades are coming to Northstar and Heavenly resorts which means more vertical and shorter wait times for skiers and snowboarders.
As part of a nationwide upgrade, Vail Resorts has announced 12 new high-speed chairlifts, a new high-speed gondola and six new fixed-grip chairlifts, plus expanded access into incredible terrain and an upgraded restaurant – all designed to help enhance user experience on the mountain. With projects planned at 14 resorts coast to coast, this is Vail Resorts’ biggest single-year investment into the ski and snowboard experience. The projects within Epic Lift Upgrade will reduce lift line wait times, giving you more time to learn new skills, explore new terrain, and discover new peaks. In addition to the lift upgrades for the 2022-23 season, there are several exciting lift upgrades and a terrain expansion being launched for the 2021-22 season. Our local resorts, Northstar and Heavenly will benefit from the project. We will see two new high-speed chairlifts that will add vertical and reduce wait times. Woo hoo!
Northstar – Comstock Lift
A new high-speed 6-person chair will replace the existing mid-mountain 4-person chair and is designed to reduce wait times at one of the mountain’s most popular lifts. This upgrade will increase uphill capacity by nearly 50%.
Heavenly – North Bowl Lift
The replacement of an existing fixed-grip triple with a high-speed 4-person chair will increase uphill capacity by more than 40% and reduce the combined ride time of the Boulder and North Bowl lifts. This is expected to also reduce wait times at the Stagecoach and Olympic lifts.
“Our mission is to provide an experience of a lifetime to anyone who visits our resorts — and delivering on that mission requires constant re-imagination and investment into the guest experience…”
Rob Katz, chairman and chief executive officer of Vail Resorts
