You’re going to love the new Crystal Ridge Express with its terminal location along the Blackcomb Glacier Road ski-out. Not only does it give you the freedom to lap the entire Crystal Zone by allowing you to bypass the Excelerator Express Chair, it also gives you faster access to the Horstman Glacier, Blackcomb Glacier and Spanky’s Ladder.
And at Whistler Mountain’s Harmony Zone, get set for quicker uploads to its stunning array of powder-filled bowls, steeps and cruisers.
“This lift expansion clearly demonstrates our commitment to continuously enhance the skiing and riding experience on both mountains,” says Dave Brownlie, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Each zone the new lifts will service are unique and much-loved by Whistler locals and destination guests alike. The capital we are investing to enhance our already amazing experiences will make Whistler Blackcomb even better.”
Construction on the lifts will begin this spring and will continue through the summer and fall with an expected opening at the beginning of the 2013.2014 winter season.
While you’ve all been distracted by our early opening, we’ve been putting the final touches on our two new lifts so that when the snow is ready, they’ll be spinning!
Both lifts are completely built and are really starting to look the part with a little white around them!
