Whiteface Adding New Quad Chairlift, Among Other Major Upgrades

Whiteface Mountain Full Trail Map

Whiteface continues to add to its impressive list of upgrades this offseason, as they are replacing the recently demolished Bear Chair double.  The old Bear Chair double opened in 1984, and serviced the area’s beginner terrain, along with numerous terrain parks. It will be replaced by a SkyTrac fixed-grip quad chair that will start at the edge of the Mixing Bowl trail, and end where the original Bear Chair offloading station was located at. There is no word yet on when this lift will open, but based on the speed of the demolition, it’s possible that it could open this upcoming winter (21-22 season).

The replacement of the Bear Chair is not the only change happening at Whiteface over the summer. After replacing the Cloudsplitter gondola cabins last offseason, the low voltage system on the lift will be replaced, completing the renovation. The Face Lift is getting completely upgraded this summer, with its motor, drive, and communicate line being completely replaced with new equipment. The construction of the Legacy Lodge is being completed, with a kitchen, firepit, patio, and cafe being added so that it can be a full-service operation for next winter. Their second snowmaking pump house will be upgraded to include six new motors, which will help improve water pressure and efficiency when it is sent up to the new pumps, motors, and lines at their third, fourth, and fifth snowmaking pump houses. Multiple snowmaking pipelines will also be replaced.

Last summer, they replaced their Bunny Hutch triple chairlift with a SkyTrac fixed-grip quad named The Falcon. They also replaced the old Whiteface gondola cabins with new ones, upgraded their main snowmaking pump house, and finished phase one of the Legacy Lodge.  A video explaining their numerous projects that are underway this summer is below.
