Whistler Blackcomb Name That Lift Contest

Name the new Crystal Quad and win a 2013.14 Season Pass or a $1,000 Gift Card at Whistler Blackcomb

Whistler BlackcombWhistler Blackcomb is opening two new lifts next season including a six-passenger lift that will replace the harmony Express and a new high-speed quad lift which will be located in the Crystal Zone. To celebrate, Whistler Blackcomb is holding a "You Name It" competition.

The competition will be running for two weeks. The guest who submits the best name, chosen by Whistler Blackcomb, will receive a choice of either a 2013.14 Unlimited Winter Season Pass or a $1,000 Whistler Blackcomb Gift Card. To make this competition even sweeter, the winner will choose three friends to be on the first public ride up the new chairlift.

"We are very excited to announce the installation of two new lifts at Whistler Blackcomb and this competition is the perfect way to engage the public and help us name the new Crystal Zone quad. The Crystal Zone is extremely popular for all types of skiers and riders, and we can't wait to see the name suggestions our guests and employees put forward."

Stuart Rempel, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Sales at Whistler Blackcomb

New Crystal Zone Lift Facts

The new high-speed quad chairlift in the Crystal Zone will be 1,708 metres (5,604ft) in length, with a vertical rise of 535 metres (1,755ft). The top of the new high-speed Crystal Zone quad will have the same location as the current fixed-grip, triple chair next to the Crystal Hut. However, the aspect of the new lift line is dramatically different, and will originate along the Blackcomb Glacier Road. This bottom terminal location will allow for access to many Crystal Zone trails including Ridge Runner, Rock 'N' Roll, and groomed trails like Outer Limits without having to return to the Excelerator Express. The new quad's location will also make it quicker and easier for skiers returning from Spanky's Ladder and the Blackcomb Glacier.
