Loon Mountain to Unveil Newest East Coast Passenger Elevator – CBS Boston
Lincoln, New Hampshire (CBS) – There’s going to be something new for visitors to New Hampshire’s Lone Mountain this upcoming ski season. The resort unveils what it calls the most advanced moving lift in North America.
Seats eight, it features heated seating and moves 18 feet per second. This means that skiers reach the unloading platform in just four and a half minutes.
A similar lift exists in Montana, but this is the first such lift to open on the East Coast.
Lune says Kank 8 will take 3,500 skiers an hour to the top of the mountain.
“The Kancamagus 8 mobile lift will be a leap into the future of skiing for our guests,” resort president Jay Scampio said in a statement.
