Photos: Chair 5 Installation in East Rim

Sep 25, 2017 | Crews at Whitefish Mountain Resort install Chair 5 at its new location in East Rim on Sept. 24. Ski resort officials said moving the chairlift will improve skier access to intermediate and advanced terrain and offer skiers an alternative way to access north side terrain while taking pressure off the resort’s Chair 1. It will also reduce traffic on the upper section of Russ’s Street known as the Ant Hill, mitigating the long traverse from the east side terrain along Russ’s Street back to Chair 1, and improve skier flow at the resort.
