New ropeways

High-speed six-pack for Whistler Mountain

In the ski resort of Whistler Blackcomb, the popular Harmony Express quad chairlift has been replaced by a new high-speed sixpack from Doppelmayr.

The Harmony zone ranks among the busiest areas of the ski resort. The terrain extends from the edge of the Symphony Amphitheatre, a bowl located in Whistler’s pristine mountain terrain, all the way over to Glacier Bowl and offers ski runs for all abilities.

Being able to house the chairs in the parking shed at the base of the mountain speeds up the task of getting the lift ready to open every morning. It also means that the chairs are free of snow and ready to go.

North America’s biggest ski resort

Whistler and Blackcomb are two side-by-side mountains which together provide 33 km of skiable terrain and over 200 marked runs, making it North America’s biggest ski resort. As well as offering varied terrain, Whistler Blackcomb also has over eleven meters of snowfall every year and one of the longest ski seasons in North America. The mountains are linked by the Doppelmayr 3S PEAK 2 PEAK gondola which, at 3 kilometers, holds the world record for the longest rope span for an earial tram of this type
