A Montana ski area plans to build two additional chairlifts in the next few years.
Great Divide Ski Area has announced in the Independent Record on Wednesday that they plan to start work next summer on the Summit Shuttle chairlift. The Ski Area Owner Kevin Taylor reveals that the new lift will mostly run parallel to a current chairlift. He explained that the lift aims to increase capacity on the slopes and allow trips to the summit to continue if the other lift has mechanical problems.
Kevin Taylor also hints that they also plan to open the Tall Timbers Chairlift in 2022, providing access to expert slopes on the area’s southeastern edge. The Great Divide Ski Area is about 22 miles (35 kilometers) northwest of Helena.
