Colorado’s Copper Mountain has already announced one investment for its ski area next winter: a fast quad.

At the end of the 2011 season, work will start to replace the old double chairlift out of the Union Creek base with a swanky new detachable quad.

The new lift is going to take over from the 35-year-old High Point double chair – faithfully transporting visitors out of the Schoolhouse Lodge base area at Union Creek since 1976. It will run a little east of the old chair, with the aim of improving access to the Catalyst terrain park and novice terrain there.

As well as the chairlift, a new trail is proposed to improve the return and hence the overall connection from lift to slopes. Resort officials say that it is the first step to improving the overall appeal of the Union Creek sector.
