Highline Area at Ski Butternut
In it's first major expansion since becoming Butternut Basin, the Murdocks moved forward with a significant investment in helping to accommodate increasing crowds.|
A new 1968 Carlevaro & Savio double chairlift (Highline Double), climbing 650 vertical feet over a run of 3,200 feet, was installed, serving two new intermediate trails (including Main Street) to the west of the summit chairlift.
In addition, the base lodge was expanded by 2,500 square feet and the snowmaking coverage increased to 42 acres.
In 2004, the Highline double was replaced with a fixed grip quad chairlift.
