Creating America's Alp


Everett's 8800

Powder Seeker 6-Place Bubble Chair

  • Built over the summer of 2016, Powder Seeker is the most technologically advanced lift in North America.

Challenger Chair

  • Also added for winter 2016, the Challenger Chair from Dopplemayr services 1,672 vertical feet, and decreased travel time by 25 percent. Design elements included new terminal locations, Chairkit gates, and a loading carpet at the Tristar drive station.

  • The only North Face retail shop in Montana opened December 2016 in Village Center, adding to a fresh lineup of snowboard shops including Burton and the Board Room.
