Lenawee Express 6-Pack in 2022

We are excited to announce that A-Basin has signed a deal with Leitner Poma to replace Lenawee Lift in the summer of 2022. We will be removing the 2001 Triple Chairlift and installing a brand new Detachable 6-pack Chairlift. In addition to 6-packs being more stable in high winds, we felt this lift would do the best job of increasing capacity. Through our planning we felt the need to upgrade the capacity of Lenawee from 1800 people per hour (pph) to 2400 pph. While this could technically be achieved with a quad chair, we felt that in actual use, the 6-pack would be far more effective achieving that goal of 2400 pph. We all know Lenawee lift lines get backed up now and again. This lift will do a great job of knocking those lines down and spreading people out better.
