Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort in Washington, US, is planning to replace its Chair 2 (The Liberator) prior to the start of the 2019 – 2020 season, pending approval from the US Forest Service and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.
Pending final approvals, the current Chair 2 will be removed and upgraded to a Doppelmayr high-speed, detachable quad chairlift with bubbles. The newly purchased chair is coming from Europe.
The resort said it had concluded that that the costs and limitations of maintaining The Liberator required it to take a new approach.
When approved, the resort believes the investment will offer consistency of operations and a much more comfortable ride up the mountain. The new lift will come with all new electronic systems and controls.
