Mount Bohemia, MI has made the big announcement that they plan to install a new triple chairlift to replace their aging frontside lift.
They’ve come to an agreement with Skytrac to install a new triple chairlift in a phased approach over the coming seasons.
Here are all of the details we have so far:
“Mount Bohemia is excited to announce that we have reached an agreement with Skytrac Lift Corporation( a division of Poma lifts) to install a new triple chairlift. The new lift will replace the current front side chairlift in the same location .
The new lift will be built in three phases with the Bottom terminal being installed next summer followed by the top terminal the following year and then the chairs and towers.
The new bottom terminal will be operational with the current chairlift starting next fall. These build outs have been done by Skytrac all over the country. In a very short time Bohemia will have a completely brand new triple chairlift that will increase uphill capacity by roughly 50%.
It will reduce our maintenance season on the new lift to four weeks allowing us to run the new chairlift for scenic lift rides all summer and fall.”

I’m particularly excited that the chairlift will actually be suited to load as a triple. For those of you that aren’t aware, Mount Bohemia currently loads their frontside triple as a double.
The answer as to why isn’t exactly clear, but this new triple chairlift from Skytrac will alleviate that issue.
I like that Boho hasn’t opted for a detachable chairlift. The new lift will increase uphill capacity, but not to a point where it will overcrowd the mountain.
