Summit Area at Magic Mountain Ski Area
After about a decade of operation, Magic Mountain expanded significantly for the 1971-72 season by installing a new Heron-Poma double chairlift. Now known as the Red Chair, the new lift climbed 1,500 vertical feet, starting slightly below and ending slightly above the existing Blue Chair.|
In addition to the new chairlift, 4 trails were added. With the increased uphill capacity, the daily lift ticket limit was increased from 1,500 to 1,800 people.
