This is some seriously great high wire news!
Doesn’t Boston have 4 subway lines? The Red Line, the Green Line, the Blue Line, and the Orange Line?
Yes. But the green line is a light rail line while the Blue, Red, and Orange Lines use heavy rail equipment.
I can think of at least 3 ski areas newer than Tamarack. Gateway Hills, Detroit Mountain, & Cherry Peak have all opened more recently.
Detroit Mountain was a reopening but you are right about the other two.
I saw that you got pics of the quad at great bear.
When are you going to get pictures of more midwest ski areas?
Will you get pics of Wisconsin ski Resorts Peter?
I keep detailed track of which resorts and lifts I have photographed and those I still need to get. Rest assured Wisconsin resorts are on the list. Keep in mind I have a full time job besides Lift Blog though.

Why doesn’t Vail have to indicate what happened to their lift? It’s a bit concerning that a tower separated like that and they won’t say why.
Probably because the investigation is On-going. I’m sure the Tramway Board is on top of it.
