Celebrate Our 60th Anniversary Season

60th Anniversary Logo

The Highlands is celebrating its 60th anniversary this season and coming full circle with lift innovation with the debut of Camelot 6, a six-person, high-speed Doppelmayr D-Line bubble chairlift, a first in the Midwest. In the early 1960s, the resort installed its first bubble chairlift, pictured above. Earlier this year, we removed 3 historic chairlifts installed back then and replaced them with Camelot 6.

The Highlands will officially turn 60 on December 26th, and we will celebrate with $60 lift tickets and fun – you won’t want to miss it.

Then the big celebration will happen Friday, January 19 – Sunday, January 21st, during The Highlands Anniversary Weekend. We will have a vintage European-themed winter market and end with a fireworks show.

Share Your Favorite Highlands' Memory

From our small beginnings of a ski club to where we stand today, there is a lot of history woven through every facet of The Highlands.

The memories of riding the first bubble chair in 1963 with leather boots, fur hats, and mega-watt smiles are stories passed on to children and grandchildren. The "I remember when..." is always the opening line to a good story.

Your history, your moments, and your memories are what made The Highlands what it is today.

Please share your favorite memory from The Highlands. We will randomly choose one winner to return and enjoy Anniversary Weekend in 2025. All submissions will be highlighted during our 2024 Anniversary Weekend, January 19-21.
