Mt. Seymour to Replace Lodge Chair

A new quad chair is coming to Mt. Seymour, British Columbia, replacing the mountain’s 1985 Mueller double. Doppelmayr Canada will build the Lodge Chair 2.0, a 160 horsepower fixed grip quad with seven towers and 44 chairs. The new lift will transport 1,600 skiers per hour, a 70 percent increase over the current double.

A loading conveyor with automatic gates should allow the lift to run 2.3 meters per second with a ride time of just 3.2 minutes. The lift will become the second modern Doppelmayr chair on the mountain and is expected to debut for the 2023/24 ski season.

    Good news for Seymour. Though I wish they would re-open the Ridge chair side of the mountain (maybe with the existing Lodge chair?)

      I’ve often wondered why that area was never resurrected.
