Lara's Gondola (Happy Valley) - 8pers. Gondola lift (monocable circulating ropeway)

All lifts/cable cars Big White

Directly to:

The 8-person Lara's Gondola lift connects Happy Valley with the Village Centre. In the ski resort itself, there are numerous high speed quad chairlifts and a high speed 6-person chairlift. Therefore, waiting times are rather rare at Big White. A triple chairlift, three double chairlifts and a tow lift up to the peak round off the offering. In Happy Valley, there are also two people movers. The tubing slope is accessed via two tow lifts.
