Snowbird reveals new lift plans
Snowbird, Utah, has announced plans for two new fast quads, one in place for next season and the other the following season.
The resort’s key improvement for the 2013 season will be the replacement of the old, slow chair in the Little Cloud area. The Little Cloud chair serves the Little Cloud Bowl and Mineral Basin areas, and is long due for replacement – the original lift was installed in the 1980’s.
Next in line for an upgrade is the Gad 2 chair, accessing terrain on the west side of the resort. If all goes to plan, the new chair should be in place for 2013/14.
In an interesting way to dispose of old lifts, the resort will sell off its two chairs to raise funds for the Wasatch Adaptive Sports group – which offers therapeutic activities, such as skiing, to people with special needs.
