After more than 10 years of planning, work is underway to expand Mt. Spokane Ski Resort in Washington State, North-western USA.
A chairlift, approximately 650 metres in length, which the resort has acquired from Bridger Bowl in Montana, will open up the area’s northwest slopes with seven new ski runs planned.
The area’s General Manager Brad McQuarrie told local media that the new lift would access some of the best terrain on the mountain.
Altogether the lift will access 80 acres of terrain and, subject to weather conditions, it is hoped that some of these will be open in time for next winter, with the whole area due to be open for the following 2018 – 19 season.
