Colorado Lift News
Summer 2002 Edition
Highlights:

Breckenridge is upgrading the old chair 4 this summer.  The old lift was a
Riblet double chair and was one of the original lifts on the mountain.  
Leitner - Poma will be replacing the lift with a state-of-the-art high-speed
quad.  This new lift will start at the base of peak 9, then travel to the base
of the old chair 4 where it will have a mid station.  Finally, it will rise to the
Vista Haus Lodge.
The Breckenridge Ski Area will also be adding the new Peak 7
high-speed six person lift.  It will be the state's only new terrain for this
season.  The lift will be constructed by Leitner-Poma.
