    Awesome. One tweak. I believe the plan is for the McCoy Park Egress to be a 3-CLF

      Per some real estate renderings from last year, it’s supposed to start at the new upper village area near the Hyatt and Sunrise lodge/base of current Sunrise lift. From there it seems to head SW or SSW to somewhere between the base of Peak 5 and Dreamcatcher – unclear on specifics given the available information. If done right, it could be transformational from the perspective of enabling single-ride access to the southern half of the old Canyons terrain. Lift layout would still suck there, and be permanently hamstrung by short-sighted real estate decisions, but I guess a step in the right direction.

        Would it replace the existing sunrise double?

        I believe the plan is to replace that with a different lift.

    You should make a “planned lifts” page that lists planned lifts that don’t have a definitive or anticipated construction date.

      Interesting. If this goes through I wonder if Wilbere would be removed. The top terminal of the proposed race lift would intersect with the top unload of Wilbere, and that is already a very high traffic intersection of Bass Highway cat-track, and it doesn’t offer much space for a new lift and more unloading traffic.

    Hey Pete, any reason this isn’t accessible from the drop-down menu? And on the map you called sunrise express a clf.
