West Dover, VT (December 10, 2011) – Mount Snow, Vermont kicked off the 2011/2012 winter ski season in style on Saturday, December 10 with festivities surrounding the Grand Opening of North America’s only high speed detachable six passenger bubble lift, the Bluebird Express. The celebration included a ribbon cutting ceremony, champagne spray, lift line party and the entire enthusiastic crowd reciting the Bluebird Oath.

The technologically advanced lift cost $8.5 million to install and is now the primary lift from base to summit at Mount Snow carrying passengers to the 3,600′ foot summit in just over seven minutes; half the ride time of the fixed grip triple chair it replaced.
