South Ridge Quad Construction, December 2018
Killington's second new lift this season has opened, as the South Ridge Quad made its public debut today.
Previously installed on Snowdon Mountain in 1992, the Poma-Yan lift was removed last spring to make way for the Snowdon Six Express, which opened in December. In its new location, the fixed grip lift is roughly 3,900 feet long by 875 vertical feet. The configuration allows for skiers to cross over to the North Ridge/Canyon area from the eastern side of the ski area, bypassing the busy K1 base area. The previous South Ridge lift, known as the "triangle chair," was installed in 1977 and partially removed in 2011 "due to lift age and reliability."
According to Killington's afternoon snow report, the South Ridge Quad will operate Fridays through Sundays, as well as President's Week.
