The Summit at Snoqualmie in Washington, US, has announced that it will install a new Doppelmayr fixed-grip quad this summer to replace the Holiday Chair, a double manufactured by Riblet that has been operating since 1975.
Construction work is set to begin in June, with completion scheduled ahead of the 2019 – 2020 winter season.
The 1380-ft long chairlift, capable up transporting up to 2400 skiers an hour, will more than double the resort’s uphill capacity in the Summit Central area. Features include a height-adjustable conveyor system which, as Guy Lawrence, President & General Manager, said will make it easier for children and newcomers: “Going from a two-person to four-person chair and adding the easy loading conveyor will be a true game changer for Summit Central, particularly for our first-timers and kids.”
The new chair forms part of a focused improvement plan for the resort’s learning zones at the mountain.
