Snwobasin: Wildcat Express Construction Update
For fifty-one years (1946-1997) the Wildcat Chairlift served as the main street of Snowbasin Resort. The single chair was the first lift installed on the resort and operated from 1946-1973. The Wildcat double was built in 1964 parallel to the single chair, tripling the uphill mountain capacity and operating next to the single on busy days. In 1973, the Wildcat chair was updated into the fixed-grip triple that lived there until this summer. Now the triple is being updated this summer into a high-speed six pack. “With the addition of a new Doppelmayr 6 passenger high-speed chair lift, we will be able to better utilize this area of the Resort that was the original heart of the ski area. The new lift will service beginner, intermediate and advanced terrain and include new snowmaking on Wildcat Bowl, Blue Grouse, Herberts, Eas-A-Long, Wildcat Traverse and Stein’s. These improvements will improve access to this wonderful terrain with earlier access and better conditions when Mother Nature is not as cooperative as we would like,” states John Loomis, General Manager at Snowbasin Resort.
