Have you heard about the new ski lift at Marmot Basin, the “Canadian Rockies Express”?
The Canadian Rockies Express, the longest quad chairlift in the Canadian Rockies, opened for the 09/10 ski season. Now you can experience it virtually through a 4 minute 29 seconds video taken from in a lift chair. The fast motion video shows going up to the top and then back down again. Normally it takes about 7 1/2 minutes to get to the top.
Riding the new lift looks like fun.
The ride travels 2,300 meters (1.5 mi). As shown on the latest Marmot Basin trail map, the new lift covers a lot of ground fast.
