The first part of the Summit 2030 plan has been completed. The new Hidden Valley Doppelmayr Triple chairlift opened up on Wednesday, marking the first of many lift projects that will take place at the Washington ski resort in the coming years. It replaces the old Hidden Valley double chairlift that serviced the area for many decades.
The chairlift has a length of 1745 feet, a vertical rise of 571 feet, and a max operating speed of 500 feet per minute. The new lift features a height-adjustable loading conveyor that helps make getting on the chairs easier. The new Hidden Valley chairlift also increased capacity and improves reliability.
The Summit 2030 Plan will add new chairlifts, infrastructure, and summer activities to the Washington ski resort. Some of their future plans include replacing the Central Express, Triple 60, Wildside, and Pacific Crest chairlifts. Click here to learn more about the extensive plans.
