Introducing: Westside Six
To celebrate Homecoming this weekend, we're making a big announcement! The brand new, high speed sixpack now has a name: Westside Six. With a ride time under five and a half minutes, it will bring 3,000 passengers per hour from the base to the summit of the West Peak. Steel for the top terminal is in place and the next round of parts to be installed are at the summit. More towers arrived today and they will be put in starting at the summit, working toward the base.
Homecoming This Saturday
Homecoming is Saturday! Things kick off with the Summit Challenge runners taking to the mountain at 10am. The BBQ & Bar will be open on the patio and a bounce house will be set up for the kids from 11am to 3pm. Live music starts at Noon! Make plans to enter the pie eating contest at 2pm, and of course, you'll want to get your season pass before rates increase (deadline is 10/8). If you already purchased your pass, pick it up and head to D Lift on Saturday to explore the new RFID Lift Access Gates!
Are You Up For The Summit Challenge?
How fast can you make it from the base to the summit on foot? Bring your trail running shoes and get up close and personal with the mountain on an uphill level this Saturday morning. The 2nd Annual Summit Challenge kicks off at 10am. Save $10 by registering online, in advance. Check in anytime between 9am and 9:45am, and then race to the top! An 18/19 Summit Series Season Pass is at stake, and there are prizes for 2nd & 3rd place, too. Every racer gets a t-shirt.
