Beaver Creek To Build New Hybrid Gondola/Chairlift

By

Gondola / Chairlift

Colorado’s Beaver Creek Resort has announced that it will be replacing it’s Centennial Express Lift (Chair 6) with a new high-speed, state-of-the-art combination gondola and chairlift. The lift will have a mix of  gondola cabins and six-person chairs all on the same line. The new lift is expected to be ready for next season and should increase uphill capacity by 35 percent.

This new hybrid lift will give guests the choice of whether to ride in a gondola cabin or on a chair, which will be served by two separate lift lines. The idea behind the new lift is to give beginner skiers and riders a much easier load and download experience via the gondolas while at the same time allowing guests who prefer to keep their skis to ride the same lift.

The new combination lift will transport 3,400 people per hour in a combination six-passenger chair and 10-person gondola cabin format (up from the current capacity of 2,800 people per hour).
