The seventh lift, drag type, will be located to the side of the Cornisa chairlift at the resort’s base. This investment is the response to a series of clients demands.
As part of the Corralco Ski Resort investment plan, which includes infrastructure and services improvement and innovation, the station will open a new excellent-speed drag lift this winter, which aims to continue positioning it as the preferred snow destination for Chileans and foreigners.
“We are happy to have a new ski lift this season, which is part of a medium-term investment plan which aims to continue developing a world-class destination. We know that all Corralco fans were looking forward to hear these news, that is why through our Instagram @skicorralco we launched a contest to help us pick the name of it”, says Guillermo Vergara, Commercial Manager.
The resort’s seventh lift system will be located parallel to the Cornisa chair lift, with the strategic purpose of responding to the four main demands of skiers and snowboarders who visit Corralco every year.
First of all, it will allow to increase the capacity of 800 skiers per hour, which will in turn contribute to improve the skiers flow to the mountain, from the resort’s base, on more busy days.
This lift also aims to improve even more the experience offered by the resort to new skiers and snowboarders, almost doubling the current beginners track, considered one of the best in America, for its smooth slope and wide extension, which allow learning in a safe and fun way. Also, expert skiers will have a new lift that will quickly drop them at the top of the mountain.
Finally, when wind and snow conditions do not allow the Cornisa chair lift operation, this new lift will allow Corralco to continue open to the public, increasing the range of weather conditions on which the resort will be open, thus offering a better service and experience to all this season’s visitors.
