Have the towers for Nordic Valley’s new six pack arrived yet? They were nowhere to be found in the parking lot area when I stopped by.
So is the pulse stage at Big Sky for summer use? It seems like it’d be redundant with Powder Seeker on skis.
It would be a good redundancy against Tram Island if powder seeker goes down for any reason.
Sounds like it would go to the top of the tram, no? Kinda odd wording….
“The third piece of the project will be a connection to the top base of the tram from the top terminal of the gondola via a pulse gondola.”
Maybe the top terminal of the gondola is the base of the tram or higher up than powder seeker and the pulse is replacing the tram
It would be a lift geared toward sightseers connecting the top of the North Village Gondola to the bottom of the tram. Right now the Lone Peak Expedition utilizes trucks from the top of Swifty to the bottom of the tram.
How long does the trail map promotion last for?
It is great to read the future plans for Sky Tavern. As one who learned to ski in the Reno Junior Ski Program, their ambitious program to add lights to allow high school teams to train in the evening is a great idea. Snowmaking is definitely needed due to the low elevation of the base (7,500 feet).
Where is Bear’s Den Mountain located, and what kind of lifts do they have? It looks like the one mentioned in the facebook post is a SLI double?
Fort Ransom, North Dakota. SLI Double and a Hall T-Bar.
Thanks! have you added any new mountains to your list in the past few months that I can check out?
