    Interesting news from Australia.
    I know that this is an American website, but Perisher (a Vail owned ski field in New South Wales) just lodged a DA for a new 6 pack to replace a triple and a 60 year old funky mueller (I think) double chair. It’s also going to be Vail’s first D-Line and is slated to be installed in the next American winter.
