High-Speed Chairlift Opens at Loon Mountain Resort
LINCOLN, NH (December 17, 2022) -Today, the Seven Brothers Express Quad, a high-speed four passenger chairlift opened at Loon Mountain Resort.
The Seven Brothers Express Quad is a Doppelmayr high-speed detachable lift which can transport skiers and riders at speeds that double the previous triple chairlift, travelling up to 1,000 feet per minute. "Adding a high-speed lift in this base area will be transformative—a major improvement for our guests.” said Brian Norton, Loon’s president and general manager. The overall uphill capacity has increased and follows the same lift line profile.
First installed in 1995 at the Governor Adams Lodge base area, this four-place chairlift underwent a major overhaul and has been relocated to the resort’s Octagon Lodge base area. New features of the lift include a loading conveyor, redesigned top and bottom terminals, operator houses, drive system and electronics.
Shaping The Future
Opening the Seven Brothers Express Quad is another major milestone of Flight Path: 2030, Loon’s ten-year investment plan focused on modernizations across the resort. “This is our second lift installation in as many years. And next winter, we’re going to make it three in a row.” said Norton. Recently, Loon announced expansion plans at the South Peak area of the resort. Those plans include the addition of over 30 acres of terrain and a new quad chairlift which is scheduled to open during the 2023/24 winter season.
