New Quad For Araphoe Basin (28-Mar-10)

Araphoe Basin, March 28, 2010 - After few new lift

After few new lift projects in the US this season, resorts are beginning to announce more new developments for 2010-11.

Colorado’s Arapahoe Basin, one of the world’s 10 highest ski area, will replace its 32  year old Exhibition triple chairlift with a new high speed quad, costing 4 million dollars and to be named the Black Mountain Express.

"With its increased capacity, shorter ride time and ease of loading, the new detachable chairlift will be a tremendous benefit for our guests," said Alan Henceroth, Arapahoe Basin's CEO.

Arapahoe Basin’s altitude gives it a long ski season – often from October to June, and a short construction period.
