Meet Utah's Newest Chairlift

by Ski Utah Yeti September 17 2013 0 Comments

Over the past few months while you were out enjoying the summer sun, Snowbird was hard at work on their most anticipated project for the coming year. This winter, a new hi-speed Gad 2 will be in operation. Gad 2, arguably one of the best lifts serving up access to hidden powder stashes on the mountain, is also the only new chairlift in the state this season. Upgrading from the dated double chair to a high speed, detachable quad, fresh turns are now accessible in half the time of the old lift. This translates to faster laps and more of Utah’s famously deep powder. After such success with the replacement of the Little Cloud chair last season, Gad 2 is poised for a big debut this winter.

See what people are saying about the new chairlift.

Do you have a favorite chairlift in Utah? The world?
