Rebuild of Selwyn Snow Resort underway with upgrade of New Chum Chair

Nov 2, 2020 | Rebuild updates

The work to rebuild Selwyn Snow Resort is underway with the announcement that Selwyn has signed a contract with Doppelmayr Australia Pty Ltd for the upgrade of the New Chum Double Chair.

The New Chum Chairlift was extensively damaged in the January bushfires which saw most of the resort’s facilities destroyed.

Selwyn’s General Manager Angela Murdoch said, “New Chum is one of the signature lifts for Selwyn Snow Resort and thousands of skiers and boarders have taken their first turns using this lift. These upgrades will see New Chum continue to be a key feature of the resort for years to come.”

The proposed works to the New Chum Chair include a full conversion of all existing operating components to Doppelmayr, replacement chairs, upgraded towers, a new Variable Speed Drive to control the lift speed to assist guests, as well as the expansion and upgrade of the load and unload platforms.

This is a great step forward in our rebuild plans as we are fully committed to being back as soon as possible.
