    So it’s going to be where Swift Current 6 starts construction this summer, but they won’t finish it until next summer.

      More likely finish next Fall . . .

    So Sunday River has time for a real estate lift, but not replacing Barker, one of the most important workhorses on the mountain?

    Two hall lifts for $1.00 I would take them right up but I don’t have the land

    I hope Eaton mountain does well. It seems like a nice little area that could be a local treasure if managed correctly.

    Btw, isn’t Timberline open much longer normally? Any reason they closed in August this year.

    It looks from one of the Swifty photos they’ve started to cut a new line for the lift somewhat to looker’s left of the existing line? Is the new Swifty going to move over a bit then?

      yes, you can see the Concrete pad for the top terminal is about 100 feet to the lookers left of the current top station. It looks to me like they did that so they could widen the ski way that comes from shedhorn to improve traffic flow.

        Yeah, wasn’t sure if that was for station or chair house.

          Both. To fit the building and have a wider pathway on the duckwalk.

    Ikon added red mountain to the pass. Did they buy red mountain or add it to the pass?

      They added Red as a partner resort. Alterra did not acquire the resort.
