STOWE, VERMONT- This summer, Stowe Mountain Resort will replace the FourRunner chairlift on Mount Mansfield with a new high-speed quad. Originally installed in the ’80s, the FourRunner has been Stowe’s most popular lift, uploading more skiers and riders than any other lift in the resort’s history. Now, amidst a winter experience that’s second to none in the Northeast, access to the greatest variety of terrain east of the Rockies will become even more seamless with a new state-of-the-art quad on Vermont’s highest peak. The new lift will debut for the 2011-2012 ski and ride season.

“Our goal is to provide the very best experience possible for all of our guests,” states Robert McEleney CEO and President of Stowe Mountain Resort. “The terrain on Mount Mansfield is the heart and soul of the resort.  This brand new detachable quad lift will provide superlative lift service to the very best alpine terrain in the East.”

Stowe Mountain Resort is rich in ski resort history and one of the original four-season destinations in the United States. As far back as 1857, when H.H Bingham constructed a hotel atop Mount Mansfield, visitors have been traveling to Stowe for a world-class, high-quality experience that is both authentic and one-of-a-kind. Setting new standards for guest service and amenities in New England for well over a century, Stowe Mountain Resort has, since 2005, been reinforcing its brand with vast improvements and additions to mountain operations and slopeside amenities.
