Lift Upgrades to Enhance the Guest Experience

Game-changing lift upgrades to make getting on and around the mountain easier, faster and more enjoyable.

21 New Lifts across 14 Resorts for the 2022-23 Season

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. The projects within Epic Lift Upgrade will reduce lift line wait times, giving you more time to learn new skills, explore new terrain, and discover new peaks. In addition to the lift upgrades for the 2022-23 season, there are several exciting lift upgrades and a terrain expansion being launched for the 2021-22 season. Read on to learn more!
