Here's your chance to own a piece of Whistler history

Jersey Cream chairs up for sale May 24
Don't delay: similar sales of Whistler chairlifts have sold out in minutes.

As Whistler Blackcomb preps a replacement of the resort's Jersey Cream chairlift, locals and lovers of Whistler now have a chance to take a piece of history home with them.

The Whistler Blackcomb Foundation announced the chairs will be up for auction later this month.

But best not delay: similar sales in both 2022 and 2023 sold out within minutes.

"Whistler Blackcomb/Vail Resorts have generously donated the recently retired Jersey Cream chairs to help raise funds for both the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation and the EpicPromise Employee Foundation," reads a release from the foundation.

Among the most popular lifts on Blackcomb Mountain, the Jersey Cream project will upgrade the high-speed lift to a six-seater, increasing uphill capacity by an estimated 29 per cent, while also reducing lift-line wait times and improving circulation, Whistler Blackcomb said when the upgrade was announced in October 2022.

The online sale opens Fri., May 24 at 9 a.m., with the chairs going for $600 a pop.

Purchases are limited to four chairs per transaction, and the chairs will be available for pickup on May 31 and June 1. Find more Frequently Asked Questions here.
