Saddleback Rangeley Quad

Slowed by COVID restrictions, only three aerial lifts were completed for the 2020-21 season, tying it with 2013 and 2007 as the weakest construction season in modern history. One lift, the Black Line Quad at Magic, remains under construction with a debut date now scheduled for the 2021-22 season.

Lift Installations by State

New lifts were evenly distributed in three states.

Lift Installations by Manufacturer

Though Doppelmayr had been the dominant installer of new lifts in New England over the past decade, 2020-21 once again saw an even split with Leitner-Poma (though Leitner Poma's project was a T-Bar).
