Peak 8 Evolution & New Five Superchair

On the heels of installing the newly upgraded Rip’s Ride in 2022, now for the 2023/24 winter season, skier and riders can look forward to the continued evolution of the resort’s most popular base area with a new, dedicated learning area plus the upgrade of 5-Chair to a new, high-speed quad – the Five SuperChair. With this lift upgrade, all four chairlifts that service Peak 8 will now be high-speed to assist with improved flow and circulation out of the heart of the resort, providing faster and easier access to the resort’s Five Peaks. The new Five SuperChair will serve as a primary portal lift for skiers and riders out of Peak 8, and with its upgrade, Peak 8 will offer a clear path to progression across its lifts, with Rip’s Ride area servicing learning and beginner terrain, Five SuperChair servicing beginner and intermediate terrain, and the Colorado and Rocky Mountain SuperChairs servicing intermediate and advanced terrain. The upgraded lift will also service the resort’s popular alpine slide during summer operations.
