So far the 2018/2019 season has been fantastic! Great snow conditions, additional glading, expanded lift capacity, a beautiful warming hut at the top of the Ripper and a major overhaul of the Downtowner, making travel to and from the Ripper that much more fun!
And of course, the resort’s exciting announcement of the appointment of Dave Brownlie as President. With almost 30 years of ski industry experience, gained through his long career with Whistler Blackcomb and Intrawest, Browlie has expressed his excitement to join the resort team in developing and executing plans “to build a truly iconic Canadian mountain resort that will attract mountain enthusiasts from around the world.”
Now with the 2019/202 season up next, we’re excited for even more additions to the skiing experience, including another 25% increase in capacity on the Revelation Gondola, and most specifically the confirmation of construction of the Cupcake Quad Chair. With an upload capacity of 1,800 skiers/hour, and a travel time of just over 3-minutes, Cupcake will offer a direct link to the Ripper area from the of the Gondola, reducing pressure on the Stoke Chair sometimes experienced on big-snow, high anticipation days!
