The chairlift many consider to be the most-hated in all of New England is finally, officially, getting an upgrade.
Some nine months after Vail Resorts filed a preliminary permitting document with the U.S. Forest Service to finally replace the Summit Triple chairlift at Attitash Mountain Resort, Vail Resorts CEO Kirsten Lynch announced that a new lift will be a go for the 2023-24 skiing and riding season.
Lynch made the announcement while commenting on the financial results of Vail’s fiscal third quarter.
“In addition to this year’s significant capacity-expanding investments, planning is already underway for our calendar year 2023 capital plan, and we are pleased to announce the first projects from that plan, with additional calendar year 2023 investments and upgrades to be announced in the coming quarters,” Lynch said. “At Attitash, we plan to replace the three-person fixed-grip Summit Triple lift with a new four-person, high-speed lift, increasing uphill capacity and reducing guests’ time on the longest lift at the resort.”
