The Union Creek High Speed Quad cranked into high gear just before the holidays replacing the highpoint lift that had been put into service in 1976.

The gears have started turning on Copper in Colorado’s brand new Union Creek High Speed Quad. The new lift provides a speedy six-minute ride to the top of Woodward at Copper Central Park and several new beginner trails on the western slopes of Copper Mountain (www.coppercolorado.com). It replaces the Highpoint Lift, which had faithfully served Copper since 1976, and the resort says that its increased rider capacity and speed will enhance the experience for skiers and riders of all ability levels.
“It’s impossible to overstate the improvements that will be seen in the West Village base area thanks to the Union Creek High Speed Quad. The new lift will help to better circulate skiers and riders in and out of the base area, in addition to dramatically reducing ride time. The average chair lift ride on High Point for two people was around ten to twelve minutes. Union Creek is kicking it up a notch by taking four people up the hill in five minutes and twenty-two seconds. Not too shabby, right?” said a resort spokesperson.
