Squaw Valley set to Upgrade Siberia Express Chairlift

The 30 year-old Siberia Express chairlift.

Squaw Valley has announced plans to upgrade their Siberia Express chairlift this summer to improve efficiency, reliability, and operational effectiveness. The new chairlift should be ready for the 2015/2016 season.

The press release says plans include replacing the current quad chair with a high-speed six-passenger chairlift, with improvements for operation in inclement (windy) weather. Andy Wirth, president and CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, LLC, said the upgrades will “have a positive impact on the skier experience on the upper mountain.”

The updated Siberia Express chairlift will remain in the same location for access to Cornice Bowl, Siberia Bowl, Mainline, and Gold Coast areas. The current Siberia Express detachable chairlift was installed in 1985.
