Devil’s Head to Build New Beginner Quad

Wisconsin’s Devil’s Head Resort will add a sixth fixed grip quad this summer, continuing a major reinvestment plan executed over the past ten years. The new Doppelmayr lift will replace two Hall chairlifts dating back to 1971 and 1975. Devil’s Head notes the new lift is just the beginning of a multi-year expansion plan to enhance the on-mountain experience for beginners.

Many Upper Midwest resorts experienced plentiful snowfall and high demand for skiing and snowboarding this winter and are looking to the future. The Devil’s Head project is the second lift addition announced by a Wisconsin resort for 2021-22. Trollhaugen also plans to add a new fixed grip chairlift to replace a Hall double.

    Are they ever going to build the future expansion on the right side of the resort? It has been on the trail maps for years.

      Since the 2007 trail map and every year sense. I was going to ask that same question.

        They might be trying as hard as possible but there could be many factors when doing an expansion. They might be trying to purchase lands / gain approval from local/national forest authorities or they might have not have came up with funds for the project yet. I could see them finally cutting the trail with this new lift though.

          They’ve already cut the two runs. All they need is the lift for the expansion to open.

    The resort looks nice. The beginner lift was the right decision

    With this new lift that will mean all that all 4 of their main lifts will have been recently “replaced”. By replaced they have replaced the towers and chairs but have kept (I assume refurbished) the bottom and top terminals from the old lifts. I wonder if with the new chairs and towers they can replace the old terminals in the future to make them high-speed chairs, or if they were just being cost-sensitive.
