Our high-speed chairlifts move you up the mountain faster than you can say Ingemar Stenmark. Let’s face it. The lift lines out West at the larger resorts are brutal, brutally long. And on the weekends, they look like rush hour traffic on the 405. You know who hates waiting in lift lines more than you? Kids. That’s who. So don’t make them wait. Next time make it Granite Peak where the lift lines are infinitesimal, not infinite.
Our lifts are manufactured by Leitner Poma, but if they had their wits about them, they’d change their name to Lightening Poma. They’re really fast, which means you’ll spend more time skiing and less time sitting.
Truth be told, many lifts out West aren’t high speed at all; so after you wait for 15 or 20 minutes, you’ll wait some more to get to your destination. And for all of you Foghat lovers, you’ll be able to listen to their hit Slow Ride eight times before you disembark.
