Anyone who has skied the Back Bowls at Vail will appreciate the gravity of this.  For years, Sun Down bowl has had an older, fixed-grip, triple chairlift and on a powder day lift lines often lasted 45 minutes to an hour or more.  After years of debate and some red tape, a new high-speed quad was installed over the summer and will open tomorrow at 9am.  It will cut ride time in half from 12 minutes to 6 minutes and increase capacity by 70%.  What does that mean to you?  Your lift lines just got a whole lot shorter and you'll have more time to spend floating through the fluffy white stuff we like to call heaven. 

Welcome to Vail New Chair 5...we look forward to meeting you!
