    Yah the summit lift was going to the scrapper last I heard, so unless sleeping giant made a last minute deal before the scrapper arrived yesterday, it’s gone.

    Always happy to see closed resorts open back up. What kind of infrastructure does/did Hickory Hill have?

      Hickory is a cool place for sure. Big problem is no snowmaking combined with low elevation. Some years they couldn’t open even when they wanted to. The Hudson River is only about 1/4 mile away. If they could just make snow off the T-bar and rope tow it might help, at least they would be able to provide some beginner/low intermediate skiing in the lean years. The upper two lift are detachable pomas that give a great launch. You can access everything using the T-bar and upper poma, so the lower poma isn’t 100% necessary There is a LOT of nice tree skiing off the top (at least there was). Would love to see the place open again!

    If Cascade Skyline Gondola is chosen, I hope it does not receive the same fate as the Sea to Sky gondola.
