Two New High Speed Quads For Solitude (25-Sep-08)

Solitude, US, September 25, 2008 - Solitude ski area in Utah has announced the installation of two new lifts

Solitude ski area in Utah has announced the installation of two new lifts, Apex Express and Moonbeam Express. The new lifts mean that both Solitude Village and Moonbeam Centre will feature high speed lifts next season. So, no matter whether guests are lodging in the Village or drive up for the day, they’ll begin the day being whisked up the hill at high speed.

Both of these new lifts will provide easier loading and unloading for resort guests, along with a quicker ride time by eliminating the frequent starts and stops of fixed-grip lifts. The new lifts give direct access to Solitudes intermediate terrain, which supports Solitude’s ongoing commitment to offering a family-friendly experience.

Apex Express will replace the existing Apex double lift with the same convenient lift access, the bottom terminal will remain unchanged, just a few steps from the village skier bridge. The Moonbeam base area will see its fourth “Moonbeam Lift”, dubbed “Moonbeam Express.” The original Moonbeam lift, built half a century ago, had a different lift line, offered night skiing and was a 10-plus-minute lift ride on a double lift.
