    From RiverWalk at Loon Mountain: “The gondola will not be built [in 2018]. This will be part of the phase 2 build which is slated to start in Spring of 2019. We unfortunately do not have an exact date yet on when the gondola will be completed.”

    Was originally announced for 2017: https://www.prweb.com/releases/2016/04/prweb13350549.htm

      I received the below statement from Sun Valley Resort earlier this spring:

      “This summer we will be preparing the terrain and infrastructure for the new lift installation. It likely will not be complete until summer 2019. However, this winter we will be offering guided tours of the new terrain that the lift will access.”

        Do you know if the current lift will be removed, or still run next season?

        There’s no way that they can remove Cold Springs this year. That and Mayday are the only two ways to get from the backside to the rest of the mountain.

    Just so you know sunrise at solitude is going to be replace in 2019 with a high speed quad

      I don’t get that one. They’d be much better off replacing Powderhorn with a HSQ and then moving it over to Sunrise if they want more capacity over there. Powderhorn is painfully slow.

        I think that it’s them getting ready for One Wasatch.

    The general manager. They are still waiting for approval.

      Thanks. I don’t see it on the Forest Service SOPA site yet.

    Fuck One Wasatch I hope that shit never gets pushed through. Absolutely unnecessary

      Why? I mean it takes a hour to get from Canyons village to park city base by chairlifts. But skiing 6+ resorts with a single pass saves insane amounts of money. And if it were to happen it would probably create the largest resort in the world. I think. The major downside I can see that you would probably spend half of your ski day riding lifts to where you want to ski/board

    I heard a rumor that Loveland will replace Lift 6 with a new triple chair in 2019 or 2020

      I’m not sure how well the changes are going to go. LA skiers have never seen a loading carpet, and they had to get rid of 90º loading on 15. Additionally, moving the terminal to the north is going to cause a lot of crowding at the unload.


      • Mike B July 9, 2018 / 3:19 pm

        Not sure I agree on the latter claim. By eye-balling, it appears they want to move the terminal to just before the intersection with Spook. Lower level skiers/riders would still have easy, direct access to Easy Rider if they are headed to parts East. IF they want to go back to towards Canyon, then they are simply 150 ft further than before along the same trails. What this does is space out the summit terminals of 16 and 4 somewhat to help reduce crowding in that direct area. It may also encourage people to take Solitude down to the base of 5 vs.fighting the crowd on Easy Rider. Certainly the increased capacity will increase crowding, but I don’t see the terminal locations as feeding into that.


      • Thomas Jett July 9, 2018 / 7:36 pm

        No, they’re moving the terminal north, not uphill. The new terminal would be around halfway between the top of 4 and the old top terminal.


      • Mike B July 9, 2018 / 8:12 pm

        Ah. Of course. My bad. Yeah – have to agree with your take here Thomas. Not sure how this well help anything in that area.
