LIFT TOGETHER, SKI TOGETHER

When it comes to chairlifts and gondola rides, the age-old adage, “Life’s about the journey, not the destination”, has never rang more true. There’s something special about the serene quality of riding the chairlift for your first run of the day on a crisp winter morning. 
 
For some, being above the slopes and the noise is a therapeutic experience. For others, it’s a social one. The chairlift connects us with the summits and the runs. 
 
But, more importantly, it connects us with each other – with family and with friends old and new.
 
Being carried away high in the sky and up the slopes together gives us the unique chance to share a story, a laugh, and much more. 
 
“If you’re skiing with family, the chair rides are actually, you know, quality time,” says Elmar Weber, a long-time guest who brings his wife and two kids to Heavenly every season. “You’re sitting there admiring the beautiful view of the lake here and you actually get a chance to talk.

For us, it’s really a bonding experience for the family.” Connecting on the lift is a favorite part of the annual getaway Annette Bradbury’s family takes to Northstar
 
Getting a whiff of the crisp pine-scented breeze and taking in the stunning alpine views while soaring above the treetops really helps her family enjoy their time together.
 
“Northstar is the perfect combination of luxury and convenience … and great family fun.”
 
On the mountain, nothing brings people closer together than the chairlift. It’s not only a chance to connect with family and friends, it’s also the beginning of an adventure each time. 
 
Riding up with fellow skiers and riders during a lesson is sometimes as fun as sliding back down the mountain. Between the numerous lessons and camps available across resorts, people of all ages are sure to learn the ropes, improve their skills, make new friends, and grow to appreciate our favorite sport. 
 
Take this opportunity to connect on a deeper level with loved ones and new friends alike.
