Sugarbush Announces Valley House Chairlift Replacement
Installation had previously been delayed due to infrastructure projects around mountain.
Saturday, March 28, 2015,

In a press release obtained by VTDigger, Sugarbush has announced it will be replacing the Valley House double chairlift with a new fixed grip quad in 2015. Sugarbush originally presented the replacement to the United States Forest Service as a 2014 project and received approval on March 3, 2014, but delayed the project due to pressing lift issues elsewhere on the mountain.

According to the release, the new Valley House will be a Doppelmayr fixed grip quad with a loading carpet. The new lift will reportedly start and end lower on the mountain and is expected to cut ride time to 8 minutes to help relieve congestion on the Super Bravo Quad.

Construction on the $3 million project is expected to begin on April 6.
