April 22, 2018 was the last day for the iconic Catskinner Chair on Blackcomb. For those not in the know, Catskinner was a triple chair dedicated to the Blackcomb terrain park. Sure, it might have been one of the slowest and oldest lifts in all of Whistler Blackcomb, but it was the perfect chair to give your park weary legs a rest and to either cheer on or heckle your friends as they rode by underneath you. It was a mellow day in the Blackcomb terrain park for the final farewell, but the usual group of suspects gathered to pay tribute to this legendary chairlift. And fear not, Catskinner is being replaced by a high-speed detached quad chair for the 2018-19 season. This yet-to-be-named lift will get you to the top even faster, meaning more park laps in one day. You better start your squats and lunges training program extra early next fall. Check out our gallery below from the final day.
