New chairs near completion at Whistler (with video)

Two new chairlifts are nearing completion at Whistler Blackcomb ski resort in British Columbia, and an email in my inbox with video of the helicopter-assisted construction this week is a reminder of a couple of things:

  1. Snow-sports season is just weeks away — or sooner, if we get a repeat snowstorm like we saw at the start of this month.
  2. Our Seattle Times snow-sports section is coming as a special issue of NWTraveler on Nov. 17. An update on Whistler attractions will be our cover story.

Here’s the video, showing the piecing together of the new Crystal Ridge Express, a high-speed quad in Blackcomb Mountain’s Crystal Zone,  and the Harmony 6 Express, a high-speed six-seater on Whistler Mountain.

Whistler plans to open Nov. 28, or sooner if enough snow flies.
