Epic Lift Upgrades

Posted on December 18, 2021


Teams across Vail Resorts worked tirelessly this summer to bring big projects to improve the guest experience at Keystone, Breck, Beaver Creek, Crested Butte and Okemo. 

Even better, MORE big things are coming when you hit the slopes next year! Lift upgrades to improve 12 new high-speed chairlifts, a new high-speed gondola and eight new fixed-grip chairlifts, plus expanded access into incredible terrain and an upgraded restaurant – all designed to help you make the most out of every minute on the mountain. With projects planned at 14 resorts coast to coast, this is Vail Resorts’ biggest single-year investment into the ski and snowboard experience. 

At Breckenridge in addition to the new Freedom Chair on Peak 7 , the beginner and ski school experience will be enhanced at the highly utilized Peak 8 base area by replacing the current fixed-grip double with a high-speed 4-person chair, increasing uphill capacity by nearly 70% and making it easier for guests to move out of the base area.
