DODGE RIDGE TO INSTALL NEW SURFACE LIFT REACHING THE SECOND SUMMIT
PINECREST, Calif. – President and CEO, Sally Helm announced Dodge Ridge will install a new Doppelmayr T-Bar surface lift this summer opening the second summit. The new surface lift, T643, represents the next step in the Dodge Ridge Master Development Plan which completes the 1998 chairlift 8 expansion and is the kick off to the future lift infrastructure including a new chairlift 1 and high speed detachable.
T643 will position skiers and riders above and beyond chairlift 8 at second summit with new access to additional advanced skiable acreage. The new addition will double the length of three expert ski runs above Granite Bowl and will also offer advanced skiers and riders the accessibility to explore more of the mountain including backcountry areas beyond the resort's boundary open to out of bounds pass holders registered with Dodge Ridge Ski Patrol.
T643 celebrates the epic and record setting snowfall total of 643 inches this past 60th Anniversary Season at Dodge Ridge. "We're excited to move forward in our development plan," said President and CEO, Sally Helm, "and this is an important step for what's to come in the next few years." The half million dollar investment is currently underway and will be fully operational for the upcoming 2011/2012 ski and ride season.
