Whistler 2013/14 Winter News - Major Lift Expansion

The skiing and snowboarding at Whistler keeps getting better and better.

A major lift expansion is underway at Whistler Blackcomb with not one but two chairlift upgrades expected to be ready for winter 2013/14.

Harmony 6 - High Speed Six Pack

The Harmony high-speed quad chair on Whistler Mountain will be replaced with a new high-speed chairlift capable of transporting six people on each chair, called the Harmony 6. The carrying capacity on the popular Harmony lift will lift by 50 percent from 2,400 skiers per hour to 3,600.

Crystal Ridge Express

At the same time, the fixed-grip triple chair in the Crystal Zone on Blackcomb will be superseded by a high speed quad chairlift. The bottom terminal of the new chair will start at a lower elevation along the Blackcomb Glacier Road, simplifying access to both the Crystal Zone and the Glacier Express Chair. Skier carrying capacity will improve by 65 per cent over the current lift to 2,400 skiers per hour.

Construction on the lifts is well underway with the new lifts expected to open at the beginning of the 2013/2014 winter season.
