The good news from Canada continues with a lift project at Whitewater, British Columbia unveiled today. Beginning in the 2023-24 season, a new Leitner-Poma fixed grip quad will ascend Silver King Ridge, complementing the existing Silver King double.
The 1,410 vertical foot lift will service 160 acres of new territory and carry 1,600 skiers per hour. “Whitewater is known for its steep, playful terrain, and the new quad truly aligns with the Whitewater brand by opening access to more of that type of terrain,” said Colby Lehman, Outdoor Operations Manager at Whitewater. “This new quad will also reduce the demand on the current Silver King lift, which ultimately will make for a better experience for both experts and beginners,” he continued.
Construction on the project will begin this summer and take two seasons to complete.
