Mt Buller announces new high-speed chairlift for 2019 season

Mt Buller resort in Victoria, Australia, is to install a AUS$6 million, 6-seater high-speed chairlift in time for the 2019 season.

The new lift will replace the Blue Bullet quad chairlift, meaning less time waiting in lines and more time on the snow for Mt Buller skiers and boarders.

A statement from Mt Buller said: “In 1983 Blue Bullet 1 & 2 were the first high-speed detachable quad chairlifts in the world. Local skiers and boarders will be a little sad to see Blue Bullet go as it’s been a big part of our mountain, but after moving a staggering 500 000 guests every winter - that’s 17 million passengers in its 34 year lifetime – we think it’s time to retire. There isn’t another chairlift in Victoria that has carried more passengers.”
