Utah's Nordic Valley Ski Resort Unveils First High-Speed 6-Person Lift
In a historic announcement, Nordic Valley Ski Resort unveiled a major capital improvement project that will bring the Ogden area resort its first Nordic Valley Ski Resort and the largest expansion project in resort history – and both are slated to open this winter.
Earlier this summer, Nordic Valley began construction on the resort’s first high-speed detachable chairlift, a six-person lift. According to resort officials, the new lift construction project – together with Power Pass resort Arizona Snowbowl’s high-speed chairlift gondola combination lift – makes up one of the largest lift installation projects in North America in advance of the 2020/2021 winter season.
The new chairlift will be the resort’s first new lift in more than 20 years and Nordic Valley will be just one of three Utah resorts to offer a lift of this type. Manufactured by Leitner Poma, it will be 4,213 feet in length with a vertical of 1,400 feet. The high-speed lift will be located on a brand new area – 300 skiable acres that’s been owned by Nordic Valley but never developed.
