EP4: Replacing the Lenawee Lift to Reduce Lines
Episode 4 of Arapahoe Basin Ski Area's podcast digs into the why and how we are replacing a perfectly good lift. Lenawee is critical infrastructure because it serves a significant portion of our terrain and travels from mid-mountain to the summit. Lenawee was built in 2001 and was last a slow-speed 3-chair. It was also the one remaining pinch point on the mountain. By swapping in a high-speed 6 (and sending the entire lift to Sunlight Mountain in Colorado to be re-used), we are creating an even better experience with less standing around and more skiing and riding.
