New chairlift for Mt Hutt


With a ride time of just 2 minutes and a carrying capacity of up to 3,000 people per hour the new Nor'west Express transforms how we all access the mountain. The old Quad took at-least seven minutes to reach the top and can only move around 1,500 people an hour on a good day so we’re excited that you’ll be able to enjoy more time on the slopes with this new addition. 

The new lift follows the same path up the mountain as the Quad did, so provides the best access to our terrain parks. This means we expect to see less demand for our Summit Six chairlift and some of our upper mountain trails at peak times.

The ride is far more comfortable with padded seats and foot-rest barsIt's a lot more robust in variable weather allowing us to get up and running faster in the morning after snowfall and to operate in higher winds.
