Snowmass Master Development Plan Update

As outlined in the Snowmass Master Development Plan and advanced ahead of full plan review, Aspen Snowmass will put in a new high-speed quad originating from across the Snowmass Mall and ending at the top of Coney Glade. This lift will replace the existing Coney Glade Chair, and the new quad will be named Coney Express. The lift project has received approvals from the U.S. Forest Service and the Town of Snowmass Village.

Set to be installed in the summer of 2024, the lift will start spinning in 2025 and will replace the existing Coney Glade chair, helping to move skiers and riders out of the base area and alleviating congestion on busy days.
