Magic Mountain is planning to complete the installation of the Green Chair for the 2017-18 season, which is expected to improve access to novice and intermediate terrain at the Southern Vermont ski area.

A Poma triple was originally installed in the Sun Corner section of the mountain in 1987, however the lift was acquired by Berkshire East following Magic's 1993 foreclosure. A decade later, the former Betwixed Double was purchased from Stratton. A 1982 Borvig, the double chairlift was partially installed at Magic starting in 2003.

According to Ski Magic LLC President Geoffrey Hatheway, Magic will be testing the haul rope shortly and plans to purchase additional components to complete the installation for the 2017-18 season.

With the completed lift, Magic will have its largest functional lift network in over a quarter of a century.

In November 2016, Ski Magic LLC, led by former Magic Mountain Marketing Director Geoff Hatheway, purchased the ski area and ramped up repairs and improvements to the mountain's aging infrastructure. The new ownership was able to repair and operate the Black Chair this February after a 3 year closure.
