Leitner Poma High-Speed Quad
LAkeview Lift – High Speed for 2022-23
2021-22 will mark the last rides on the classic Lakeview triple chair. Mt. Rose – Ski Tahoe has announced that plans are underway to expand the Lakeview Zone of the mountain to include a new high-speed chairlift plus additional ski terrain. Estimated to be the largest single-year capital improvement project in the resort’s history, the new lift will be a key piece of Mt. Rose’s efforts to enhance the overall experience in this area which will include trail additions, existing run improvements, and enhanced skier traffic patterns. The expansion is estimated to be in the range of upwards of $7.5 million and is expected to be completed in time for the 2022-23 winter season. Preliminary work has commenced including engineering, site planning, and preparation for the unload station of the Leitner Poma high-speed quad. The lift replacement process is set to begin in the spring of 2022.
This past winter of 2020-21, strong ridership combined with COVID-19 related chairlift restrictions proved it necessary to increase Lakeview’s lift capacity. With this new chair comes the opportunity to both build new trails and augment existing terrain for an enhanced mountain experience. The loading area remains the same (adjacent to the Northwest Express load) but the unloading location will be situated further uphill (150’ to the west) of the existing unload location. This new top terminal site provides novice access to a new run, ultimately making the connection with the Around the World trail. This new zone also opens up access to extensive glades in previously under-used areas with the added bonus of more expansive views of Lake Tahoe. One of the end goals is to reduce the mixing of more dynamic skiers and riders with those who may be only just starting to advance to more challenging terrain.
This lift is set to go to another ski resort so lift chairs are not likely to be available for purchase.

The 60-year-old domestic water system serving the Main Lodge base area is being replaced. This may not be the most exciting project to enhance the ski experience, but the old system was due for an upgrade. The project includes 4000’ of new pipeline from a tank off of the lower section of Around the World which will subsequently increase storage capacity and improve fire protection.
