Lifts/cable cars Vail

There are mostly high speed chairlifts as well as two gondola lifts that serve as feeder lifts to the Vail ski resort. Unfortunately, the chairlifts do not have weather protectors. Three pommel lifts are available as feeder lifts and also for the beginners. In November 2012, the first 10 person gondola lift with seat heaters in North America went into operation here.
