    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.

      It will connect the lower part of Spanish Peaks to the top of Lone Moose. The lift line was cut last summer. It is scheduled to be built in either 2019 or 2020.

        I believe this one will connect the highlands development to the ski area correct?
