On Friday, December 10 we celebrated the grand opening of the Kancamagus 8 – the most technologically advanced chairlift in the East. This incredible lift has been two years in the making and it is an exciting time for Loon as it is the first major project of Flight Path: 2030.
As guests and team members gathered to witness this monumental event there was a definite buzz in the air. A DJ played us through the morning as excitement built outside and guests finally got their first look at the parking structure interior as the doors were opened and chairs were loaded onto the line.
Jay Scambio rang the ceremonial Austrian cowbell presented by Doppelmayr signaling the official homecoming of the Kanc 8. The echoes of guests' own bells could be heard across the Governor Adams Lodge base area welcoming the Kanc 8 to the family.
“We needed to install a lift with technology and features that will remain cutting edge for years to come – and Kanc 8 is just that. Loon’s founder, Governor Sherman Adams, was a pioneer and innovator and that spirit is rooted in our efforts here at Kanc 8” - Jay Scambio, General Manager and President
A huge thank you to everyone who celebrated with us on Friday we hope that you enjoy the many features that make Kanc 8 so special. If you missed the celebrations and those who haven’t visited yet to ride the Kanc 8, what're you waiting for?!
