Solitude at Okemo Mountain Resort
With record skier visits and upcoming real estate plans, Okemo decided to expand northward with a new trail complex. A new Poma fixed grip quad chairlift, climbing 1,115 feet over a length of 4,605 feet was installed, serving 8 trails - some partially existing from the 1960s, others new. While the liftline was rated a black diamond, the majority of the trails in the complex were intermediate.|
As the mountain and real estate developments grew, the fixed grip quad was moved to the new South Face area and replaced a new Poma high speed detachable quad chairlift in 1994.
Though now technically in the middle of the massive Okemo ski area, the area still retains its "Solitude" name.
