Shedhorn 4

The Shedhorn area has been upgraded to a high speed quad.

The new, updated high speed quad lift at Shedhorn reduces ride times from 12 minutes to less than five. Lift lines have been reduced with added capacity, and guests benefit from more laps in less time on this incredible part of the mountain.
