Vail Resorts Announces Enhancements to the Guest Experience
Vail has announced new strategies taking effect during the 2021/22 North American season to enhance the guest experience and prioritize its pass holders. They will limit lift ticket sales during peak holidays to prioritize pass holders, launch new operational plans to improve lift-loading efficiency and launch a new version of EpicMix Time with a full-day forecast of lift line wait times.

New High-Speed Lift and Gondola Out of Whistler Blackcomb’s Creekside
Vail announced new projects for Whistler Blackcomb for the 2022/23 season including a new, high-speed 8-person gondola, replacing the existing 6-person gondola, significantly improving wait times and increasing out-of-base uphill capacity by 35% in the Creekside area, especially on high-volume days. The existing, 4-person Big Red Express chairlift will also be replaced with a high-speed 6-person chair to increase uphill capacity by nearly 30% and enhance and modernize the guest experience mid-mountain out of the Creekside area.
