The New Sherwood Express

Construction on the new Sherwood Express
High-Speed Detachable Quad Chairlift (accessing
some of Alpine's most favored intermediate through
expert terrain) is well underway.

faster than its predecessor, providing greater access
to enjoy approximately 400 acres of intermediate
groomed and expert off-trail terrain in the popular
Sherwood Bowl.

The Sherwood Express installation is another step in
the resort?s long-term vision to provide a uniquely
memorable experience for its skiing and snowboarding
