New Big Sky Resort chairlift is in the works for the Winter 2021 ski season: the Swift Current 6.
Big Sky Resort has some upgrades coming this winter with their new chairlift. Replacing the Swift Current high-speed quad, this new state-of-the-art chairlift will increase uphill capacity out of the Mountain Village base area by up to 50%. A gearless drive makes for whisper-quiet operations, also significantly improving energy efficiency. On the hill, the new 90-degree unload will exit skiers toward the bowl on Jay Walk. Expect a smoother skier flow. This new lift comes equipped with Big Sky Blue weatherproof bubbles, ultrawide heated seats, and individual headrests and footrests. This highly anticipated upgrade will offer unrivaled comfort and speed on the mountain!
What does the new chairlift mean for your mountain experience? Here are some quick facts:
- Unrivaled speed: 1,200 feet per minute/6 meters per second
- Up to 50% increase in uphill capacity, consistently transporting 3,000 skiers per hour
