The fixed grip quad chair will be manufactured by Leitner-Poma of America and have an upload capacity of 1800 people per hour. It will bring users up 130 vertical metres (426 vertical ft) from the base station at 1649 metres (5410 ft) to a top elevation of 1779 metres (5837 ft).
The chair, which will be called the Cupcake Chair, will be positioned in between the Revelation Gondola and Ripper Chair; this will end reliance on the Stoke Chair for access to the Ripper Zone and also create a new ski area for those transitioning from beginner level to intermediate.
The resort has also announced the development of seven new runs, four green and three blue.
