Newer, faster lift coming to Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort

There will be a faster way for skiers to make it to the top of some of the most popular trails at the Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort for the next ski season.

The resort announced Wednesday plans to replace the current lift on Chair 2 with a new quad lift which will increase the capacity to 2000 guests per hour versus the current 900.

Chair 2 brings skiers and snowboarders to the Lower West Bowl, The Line, and The Strip Terrain Park.

The new lift is the first milestone in the resort's multi-million dollar upgrade which includes more trails, more lifts, upgraded equipment and better facilities for guests.

Construction starts Monday and the lift is expected to be ready to go for the opening of the 2014-2015 season. The construction also means the ski resort will not be open for some of the traditional summer activities until July.

To celebrate the new project and the end of the 2013-2014 season, lift tickets on Sunday will be only $19.82, which is to recognize the year Chair 2 went into service: 1982.
