Extreme-seekers have plenty of black diamond options, with 30 percent of the terrain designated as black diamond, but the new Polar Peak express chairlift is a game-changer for experts. The new lift—installed in 2011—propels skiers to Polar Peak’s 7,800-foot summit and provides a whole new bowl chalk full expansive steeps that’ll get the pumping. Polar Peak Lift also boasts the biggest vertical in the Canadian Rockies.
