We are thrilled to announce the construction of a highly anticipated six-person lift that will enhance the skier experience and provide additional lift capacity in the Strawberry area of the resort. The installation of the new DeMoisy Express is underway and will be complete in advance of the 2023-24 winter season.

"To say that both the Snowbasin staff and loyal guests will be excited about this lift announcement may be the understatement of the year. DeMoisy Express has been contemplated as part of our future plans for the resort, and we are thrilled to be moving forward on this incredible addition."
DeMoisy Express, aptly named after the historic DeMoisy Peak that it will be nestled beneath, will add to our award-winning advanced lift system. The bottom terminal will be positioned near the existing Strawberry Gondola bottom terminal. The top terminal will drop passengers in a wind-protected area above Dan’s Run.
Through this strategic placement, we will be able to double the uphill capacity of this region, provide multiple options for skiers and riders into the Strawberry area, and allow access to this varied and sought-after terrain more frequently throughout the season. Additional benefits include the creation of new trails, more convenient access to the main base area and additional capacity to relieve congestion in the Strawberry area on busier days.

DeMoisy Express will be Snowbasin's 13th lift and the most recent addition since the new Middle Bowl Express in 2021. As with Middle Bowl, the resort will be working with Leitner POMA of America for the manufacturing and installation of this project. The new chairlift will have the ability to transport 2,400 riders every hour, with bottom-to-top service in approximately ten minutes.
Snowbasin's lifts were ranked No. 2 by SKI Magazine in 2022. The addition of DeMoisy Express is expected to increase the lift system’s notoriety and enhance the overall experience of the resort.

Paired with this lift will be a new patio at the base of Strawberry Gondola and DeMoisy Express. Spanning from the northwest portion of Strawberry Lodge and encompassing over 5,000 square feet, this new patio will offer guests an additional spot to rest and refuel before returning to the slopes. It features a heated cobblestone patio with over 180 seats and multiple dining options. This project is scheduled to be completed for the debut of DeMoisy Express in mid-December.
