Seven Brothers Express Quad

Doubling Speed

After the installation and launch of the Kancamagus 8, the Kancamagus Express Quad spent the winter getting a complete remodel in preparation for the short journey east to replace Loon’s only fixed-grip triple chairlift—becoming the Seven Brothers Express Quad.

In its new location, the Seven Brothers Express Quad will be a completely modernized lift with a new look, drive system and electronics. The rope speed will more than double compared to the triple chairlift—going from 450 feet to 1,000 feet per minute—and cut the ride time to three and a half minutes. The overall uphill capacity will increase and will follow the same lift line profile. 

" We are constantly evaluating the operations of the resort with Flight Path: 2030 in the forefront of our minds. Increasing the speed and capacity at Seven Brothers will elevate the ski experience for guests coming out of the Octagon Lodge Base Area—especially on days with high winds."
Brian Norton, President & General Manager

The Seven Brothers Triple was a CTEC lift that came to Loon in 1985 and is being replaced with a Doppelmayr high speed detachable quad chairlift. This lift, the Kanc Quad was originally installed in 1995 and took its last turn around the bullwheel on March 28, 2021.
