Big Sky Resort bringing eight-seat chair lift to Montana next ski season

Posted: Updated:

BIG SKY - North America's first eight-seat chairlift is coming to the Big Sky Resort for the next ski season.

The resort is installing a Doppelmayr D-line lift, which includes ergonomically designed, extra-wide heated seats and "Big Sky blue" bubbles on Andesite Mountain, Stephen Kircher, president of parent company Boyne Resorts, told a community gathering recently.

Additionally, the resort plans to replace the Shedhorn double chair with a high-speed quad, which will shorten the uphill ride by nearly two-thirds and improve wind resistance, according to a Wednesday release from the resort.

Resort officials boasted the new eight-seat chair will be the "most technologically advanced lift ever built." A high-resolution LED screen at the lower terminal will provide guest information and engagement.  The lower terminal of the lift will be 50 feet uphill from the current lower terminals, adding space in the base area.
