Doppelmayr will build the first D-Line lift in Utah this summer, a six-pack replacing the aging Crest Express at Brighton Resort. The replacement lift will feature 90-degree loading with a conveyor and video screen. Riders will enjoy a 5.3-minute ride time with a capacity of 2,400 skiers per hour. Crest will serve mountain bikers in the summer with three bike clips on each chair. The lift won’t have bubbles or heated seats.
Brighton also announced the construction of a new mid-mountain restaurant and the implementation of a parking reservation system for next season.
Crest 6 is the ninth new lift project Brighton owner Boyne Resorts announced for the 2023–24 ski season. Construction is expected to begin in May.
