Squaw Valley Adds New Triple Chairlift (30-Aug-09)

Squaw Valley, USA, August 30. 2009 - This summer, Squaw Valley USA's old double chair

This summer, Squaw Valley USA’s old double chair, the-High Camp Lift, is being removed to make way for the new High Camp Triple Chairlift. 

The change is needed because over recent seasons the Monster Park at Riviera has seen a huge expansion. Providing access to the FordBelmontPark, the Riviera Superpipe, and the numerous jump lines and jib features of the Central Park and High Camp Rail Yard, the High Camp Chair has become the hub for park riders of all tastes and abilities. 

The new High Camp Triple Chairlift improves access to the multiple terrain parks and also to the High Camp area’s vast beginner terrain, restaurants, ice skating rink, Lagoon & Spa, and Olympic Museum. 

Squaw Valley’s snowmaking department is also spending summer 2009 continuing a multi year vast overhaul of the resort’s existing snowmaking system. Most notable is the addition of a three mile pipeline to more efficiently transfer water from storage ponds to the snowmaking building and a new 1200 horsepower air compressor that doubles Squaw Valley’s snowmaking capability.
