Wild Mountain: New Chairlift For Winter 23/24
Wild Mountain will be installing a brand-spanking-new Skytrac 4-person chairlift. The new chairlift will run parallel to Chair 2, and act as a replacement for the current Chair 3 which was the first chairlift built at Wild Mountain in 1972.
The new chairlift will become the primary chairlift used for access from the base lodge, but Chair 2 will remain in use for summer operations and high visitation days during the winter.
The new chairlift will be erected during the summer of 2023 and ready for use during the 23/24 ski season.
Once this new chairlift is installed, Wild Mountain will remove Chair 3 which will make the South Wild trail free of lift tower obstructions. Vintage chairs from the disassembled chairlift will be available for purchase next summer.
This investment marks the first new chairlift installed at Wild Mountain since Chair 1 was installed in 1983 – 39 years ago.
