Curious how one skis through the base at Camelback. Looking on google earth I see they have a full on waterpark with wave pool and lazy river and countless slides and buildings. Do they have a system to cover the wave pool and river somehow then cover with snow? Those are to deep to just fill with snow. Was looking to see where the Sunbowl Quad would be built.
Skied there for a few years in the mid-2000s. The lazy river is all covered up with snow, and all of the waterpark stuff is out of the way of skier flow.
about new crystal chair
1. Old crystal chair is the only sun peaks lift to not have footrests as old hall and murray latta doubles had footrests on them
2. will new crystal have a diesel drive or a aux
Pretty sure one of the big reasons for the replacement was conversion to an electric prime mover. I’ll check it out once I can go to Canada again. Might be awhile :(
