BANFF, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 24, 2012) - Sunshine Village Ski and Snowboard Resort unveiled one of the first loading conveyers in Western Canada at its WaWa Quad Chair. The new conveyor, which is the first of its kind at the world-renowned resort, will offer ease-of-guest flow and shorten lift lines.

Popular throughout Europe and resorts around the globe, conveyers increase comfort for guests while providing fewer stoppages of chair lifts. This results in shorter lift lines and ride times due to fewer stops.

"At Sunshine Village, we remain committed to providing leading-edge technologies in order to deliver an exceptional guest ski experience," begins Dave Riley, Chief Operating Officer, Sunshine Village Ski and Snowboard Resort. "New infrastructure enhancements such as the WaWa Quad Chair loading conveyer, are integral in ensuring Sunshine Village remains competitive on the international stage."

The Wawa Quad Chair is one of 12 lifts across 3,500 acres at the popular ski and snowboard resort, which is located in Banff National Park. Steady snowfall leading up to the holiday season has provided an exceptional 147 cm (58 in) base, with nearly 4 metres (158 in) of snow falling on the resort to date.
