Epic Lift Upgrades

Posted December 20, 2021


Teams across Vail Resorts worked tirelessly this summer to bring big projects to life at Keystone, Breck, Beaver Creek, Crested Butte and Okemo. 

Even better, MORE big things are coming when you hit the slopes next year! 12 new high-speed chairlifts, a new high-speed gondola and eight new fixed-grip chairlifts, plus expanded access into incredible terrain and an upgraded restaurant – all designed to help you make the most out of every minute on the mountain. With projects planned at 14 resorts coast to coast, this is Vail Resorts’ biggest single-year investment into the ski and snowboard experience. 

At Keystone, enhancements to Bergman Bowl will add 16 new trails, a ski patrol facility, and snowmaking infrastructure, and include a new high-speed 6-person chairlift, expanding access to 555 acres of incredible terrain. This project unlocks access for novice and intermediate guests and provides expanded entry to expert terrain in Independence and Erickson Bowls and is planned to be completed for the 2022-23 winter season.
