WHISTLER BLACKCOMB has just unveiled plans to build a new high speed quad in the high alpine for the 2006-2007 ski season. The Piccolo Express Lift on Whistler Mountain will run to the Piccolo peak and will provide access to more than 1000 acres of the most spectacular high alpine terrain available in North America.
With 8,171 skiable acres, Whistler Blackcomb is the largest ski resort in North America.
Construction will begin on the lift this spring and will continue through the summer and fall with an expected opening at the beginning of the 2006-2007 winter season.
Further capital plans within the $22.1 million to be spent for the 2006-2007 season will be announced in the summer.
