“When people come here, it’s like if they’ve never been here before, it’s like, ‘Poof!’ Their minds are exploding trying to figure out how this chair, this machine works.” —Single Chair | Mad River Glen, VT
“You can get a lot of vertical with this tramway. In eight to ten minutes you can ski 3,000 feet. Our speed is about between 16 and 18 miles an hour. The Snowbird Aerial Tram is a great way to just go skiing.” —Aerial Tram | Snowbird, UT
“You’re not at the top of Whistler until to get to the top of the Peak Chair, and once you’re there you take all that in…just that whole ‘Ah-Ha!’ moment…it’s like nothing else you’ve seen in your life.” —Peak Express | Whistler, BC
If you’ve ridden these three lifts and skied from their launch points, you know. Their influence on our beloved pastime keeps skiers going back for more and new skiers seeking them out. For the second season of Iconic Lifts, an unforgettable experience awaits.
