As Steamboat Ski Resort moves full steam ahead with revitalization projects at the resort, it has also started the removal of Priest Creek lift by beginning to take the chairs off the line on August 18. SSRC has long planned to remove the Priest Creek lift, the oldest chairlift at Steamboat Ski Resort installed in 1972, as the lifts parts are outdated and no longer supported. Instead of having the lift stand dormant, the resort will be taking advantage of crew availability and favorable weather to begin the removal process. Priest Creek lift operated zero days last year and six days over the past three years, and its removal is not expected to impact daily operations.
