Major Lift Capacity Increases
April 12 2017
Skiers and snowboarders have a lot to get excited about for the 2017-18 ski season!
Not only are we celebrating our 10th anniversary, we're also increasing Mt. Mackenzie's lift capacity from 7,299 to 9,700 skiers per hour with the addition of new cabins on the Revelation Gondola and chairs for the Stoke.
The Revelation Gondola will be fitted with 24 new cabins increasing lift capacity by 25%. The effect of this upgrade will be most noticeable at the village base, decreasing wait times and allowing people to load more quickly. An additional 21 chairs will also be installed on the Stoke Chair line to help carry more skiers up the mountain per hour.
The possibility of adding a direct ski run from the top of the Revelation Gondola to the base of the Ripper Chair is also being explored.
This summer, the Revelation Gondola will be running its full length, transporting guests one mile high to breathtaking views. A network of hiking trails and sightseeing platforms overlooking the Columbia River and Monashee Mountain range will be open for our guests to explore and discover.
