Christmas has come early in Mount Snow, Vermont as the resort revealed North America’s only high speed six passenger bubble lift. Mountain enthusiasts no longer have to wait the 15 minutes normally needed to reach the summit at Mount Snow as project leaders have cut that time in half. Half the time on the lift means double the time on the mountain! Now that is a cause for epic celebration.

As a result Mount Snow kicked off the 2011/2012 winter ski season in style on Saturday, December 10 with festivities surrounding the Grand Opening of North America’s only high speed detachable six passenger bubble lift, the Bluebird Express. The celebration included a ribbon cutting ceremony, champagne spray, lift line party and the entire enthusiastic crowd reciting the Bluebird Oath.

The technologically advanced lift cost $8.5 million to install and is now the primary lift from base to summit at Mount Snow carrying passengers to the 3,600′ foot summit in just over seven minutes; half the ride time of the fixed grip triple chair it replaced. So get to the mountain, double time, and spend the day enjoying more runs than you ever thought possible.
