Whistler Debuts Two New Chairlifts for the 2013/2014 Ski Season
The Crystal Ridge Express, with its terminal location along the Blackcomb Glacier Road ski-out, allows skiers and riders to lap the entire Crystal Zone with quicker access the to Horstman Glacier, Blackcomb Glacier and Spanky’s Ladder. This new quad chairlift will be 5,604 feet in length with a vertical rise of 1,755 feet and carry 65% more skiers and riders, improving the uphill capacity to 2,400 people per hour. The new Crystal lift will deposit passengers in the same location as the old triple chair (at the Crystal Hut), but it starts 518 feet lower.
On Whistler Mountain, the new Harmony 6 Express shortens upload time to the Harmony Zone’s powder-filled bowls, steeps and cruisers. Replacing one of the most popular lifts at Whistler, the new Harmony chair will dramatically improve the uphill capacity, carrying 1,200 more passengers per hour than the old lift. The Harmony 6 has the same alignment as the current quad chair, spanning 5,672 feet in length with a vertical rise of nearly 7,000 feet.
