Kanc 8

Opening Winter 2021/22
NORTH AMERICA'S MOST TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED CHAIRLIFT COMES TO THE EAST

Kancamagus 8, or Kanc 8, is an eight-seat D-Line Doppelmayr chair with ergonomically shaped heated seats and tinted bubble. Set to replace the Kancamagus Express Quad, the Kanc 8 will transport 3,500 skiers per hour to the top of some of Loon’s most popular terrain.

This new high-speed, eight-person chairlift will also feature an automatic restraining bar, individual footrests and an adjustable loading carpet for young skiers and riders. The D-Line holds 205 new developments, including 31 innovations and 14 patents, making it the most modern chairlift in the world. Featuring new Doppelmayr Direct Drive (DDD) technology, a gearless drive allows whisper-quiet operation and low maintenance, while increasing energy efficiency.

Other notable highlights of the new Kancamagus 8 include:
  • Travel speed of 18 ft. per second, or 1,100 ft. per minute
  • Weather-blocking tinted bubbles
  • Raiseable loading carpet
  • Conical towers
  • Bike haul capability
