Beaver Creek Resort in the Vail Valley, Colorado, invested in a ropeway which marks a new world record. The new Centennial Express is the longest combination lift ever built by Doppelmayr/Garaventa and replaces a quad chairlift. This lift is specially designed to address the differing needs of the users, who get to choose from an unprecedented combination of 10-passenger cabins and 6-seater chairs. While a loading conveyor gives passengers convenient access to the chairs, there is an entirely separate loading zone for the cabins. In February 2015, Vail/Beaver Creek played host to the Alpine Ski World Championships.
