Copper Mountain: Construction work new American Eagle and American Flyer
American Flyer Chairlift
Copper Mountain, and its parent company, POWDR, announced continued enhancements to the way guests access the mountainís world-class, naturally divided terrain. The planned upgrades to replace the American Eagle and American Flyer lifts with high-speed cabin and bubble-style lift service are slated to debut during the 2018-19 ski season.
A Leitner Poma high-speed 6-person chair with bubble enclosures is set to replace the high-speed quad known as the American Flyer lift, offering a more comfortable ride and a 33 percent increase in uphill capacity. The new lift will primarily serve the easy and intermediate side of the resortís unique naturally-divided terrain and also will provide expedited access to Copperís advanced high alpine bowls.
American Eagle Chairlift
The American Eagle Lift, a high-speed quad, will be replaced with a Leitner Poma high-speed lift that includes a combination of both 6-person chairs and 8-person gondola cabins. The new lift will increase uphill capacity by over 40 percent, allowing more skiers and snowboarders access to an abundance of Copperís intermediate terrain.
