After a new gondola was opened at Cape Smokey in Nova Scotia this summer, the Canadian province is starting to gain some notoriety among the skiing community. Ski Wentworth will be the next major resort in the province with a major lift addition. The mountain announced on Friday the third top to bottom lift to service the base area. This Dopplemeyer fixed-grip quad will join the other quad chairlift that opened in 1987, and a t-bar that was built in the late 1950s. The base location of the lift will be next to the beginner area, and the lift line will go up the Helter Skelter run. The lift will unload at the same location as the Blue Chair and will double the mountain’s capacity. Lift construction will begin in the spring of 2022 and will be open for the 2022-23 season.
This comes as Ski Wentworth invests towards its future. The mountain aims to be a year-round destination, which includes adding other summer activities including mountain biking. The ski area has twenty trails, a ski/snowboarder cross, two terrain parks, and night skiing on three lifts. You can read their official statement here or in their social media post down below.
