Holiday Quad Project Update
The Holiday Quad Chair project is starting to pick up steam! In the coming weeks you'll really start to see the lift take shape. With the dirt and concrete work now complete, the Dopplemayr crew can start erecting terminals and towers for the all-new quad chair at Summit Central.
Similar to Pacific Crest Quad, the new Holiday Quad will feature an easy load conveyor system that makes loading a breeze, especially for beginner skiers and snowboarders. The conveyor carpet is height adjustable, which makes loading the lift even easier and safer for kids. The large concrete pit shown in the photo of the bottom terminal houses the conveyor assembly.
Progress has been smooth so far and we expect the lift installation to be completed well ahead of the 2019-20 winter season.

450 ft/minMAX OPERATING SPEED
The new Dopplemayr quad can transport up to 2,400 skiers per hour up the mountain. Not only does each chair hold two additional riders, thanks to the efficient loading conveyor system, it can also operate at a higher speed than the old chairlift.
