    I’m shocked by Revelstoke’s lift priorities. I can maybe see the need for 11, but 1? I was expecting them to push for more terrain with 16 or 18, or at least improve access with 6 and fifteen. How bad are the lines at the gondola and 12?

      I was also surprised and assumed they would go higher on Mt. MacKenzie or build out the area above the old Mueller double to supplement the gondola. RMR’s timing opening with the Great Recession really was unfortunate.

    Wow MND to North America meanwhile BMF is looking for a deep pocket to buy them as they have burnt through their cash and may have a grip recall looming on the horizon.
