Loveland Ski Area is putting the finishing touches on their new fixed-grip triple chair lift. The project set Loveland back $2 million, but the new Chair 4 will be a triple instead of a double.
"We started tearing the old lift down pretty much right after we closed and it is just about completed," Loveland Spokesperson John Sellers said. "It’s the same footprint and serves the same terrain,”
Final chairs are being attached and the electrical is being finished now on the new chair. The new Chair 4 will have 112 chairs and can get 1,392 people up the mountain per hour, as opposed to 900 with the last chair. Ride time is eight minutes.
Loveland opens each season as soon as enough snow falls, or can be made, to open a few runs. The season usually lasts into May.
It’s one of the closest resorts to Denver, perfect for making some turns when you’re in the Mile High City for a business trip. Loveland even offers the Day Tripper Package. It includes everything you need for a day on the slopes. The Day Tripper package includes a full day lift ticket, ski or snowboard rental and all your clothing: jacket, pants, gloves, hat, and goggles. Pick it up at the Loveland Ticket Window for $89 in early or late season, and $99 for peak season.
