STEVENS PASS — Vail Resorts announced Friday updates to its Stevens Pass Mountain Resort ski area.
The updates are part of a $35 million commitment Vail Resorts made when it purchased the Stevens Pass and ski resorts in New Hampshire, Vermont and Colorado, said Jennifer Smith, a Vail Resorts spokeswoman.
These updates will be phase one of upgrades and include turning two ski lifts into four-chair lifts. One of those lifts will also be a high-speed lift and the other will be a fixed-grip lift. Vail Resorts also plans to update and enhance dining options at Stevens Pass.
The company did not explain what it meant by enhanced dining options, Smith said.
The company will need a permit from the U.S. Forest Service before it can update its ski lifts, according to its website.
