Squaw Valley, USA will be replacing the Siberia high speed quad chair with a high speed six-pack chair this summer. Squaw filed for a permit to replace the chair in 2015 back in October 2014.
“Siberia Express is being replaced this summer and will become a high-speed six pack.” – Squaw Valley
Siberia is a legendary chair and is rumored to be the first ever high speed quad in the USA.
Siberia gains access to the world famous Palisades and the Chimney at Squaw. Siberia also allows for access via the Reverse Traverse to Headwall when the Headwall chair isn’t running.
Siberia will now be Squaw Valley’s 6th high speed six-pack after Headwall, Big Blue, Gold Coast, and Shirley Lake.
This is certainly a good move by Squaw Valley as the Siberia chair has had many mechanical issues the past few years resulting in unexpected mid-day closures.
Which chair would you like to see replaced next? Red Dog? Granite Chief?
