New Lift and Gladed Terrain For Aspen (24-Oct-11)

A new Leitner Poma high-speed quad at Tiehack on Buttermilk, one of Aspen in Colorado’s four ski areas, will replace both the Eagle Hill and the Upper Tiehack lifts, cutting the combined ride time from 18 minutes to just under seven minutes. Construction began in spring on the $7 million [£4.4 million] Tiehack Express project, with completion anticipated in December 2011.

Buttermilk's trail crew has also cleaned up the gladed terrain on the Tiehack side of the mountain with the intention of breathing new life into the underutilized area this winter. The rolling, gladed and groomed terrain is ideal for skiers and riders looking for single black trails off the beaten track.
