New Lifts for Whistler Blackcomb

Vail Resorts, Inc. has announced three new lifts for Whistler Blackcomb for the 2018/19 season. Upgrades include:

  • A new 10-seat gondola to replace the Wizard and Solar chairlifts on Blackcomb Mountain
  • A new six-passenger speed lift to replace the current Emerald Chair in the Family Ski Zone on Whistler Mountain
  • Replacement of the triple-passenger Catskinner chair with a four passenger, high-speed lift on Blackcomb Mountain

The changes will create the first three-gondola connection in the world, allowing guests to upload, connect between the mountains via the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola and download in a gondola for a weather protected experience.
