Two new chairlifts are coming to Vail this coming season!

Vail is continuing improvements (following the installation of the new “One” gondola last season) with two new lifts being installed this summer.

The resort has begun construction of a new high-speed six-passenger chairlift to replace the four-person Mountaintop Express Lift (#4) from Mid-Vail to the Patrol Headquarters area.

The Gopher Hill Lift (#12) in Golden Peak – a double lift installed in 1974 – will be replaced by the former Rose Bowl lift (#4) from Beaver Creek.
