    I don’t have a comment about any of these news clips but a question about Mt Bachelor’s Outback Quad Express chair. For the last couple of years it has been operating at ½ speed supposedly because of a worn out motor or some other mechanical issue. I was wondering if you had any information whether or not that lift will be fixed for the coming year? Great lift with great terrain but fixed-grip speeds. Lastly, love your blog!

      Hi Tom, thanks for the question and compliment. I asked Mt. Bachelor for comment on this last season and did not receive a reply. Hopefully someone who knows something can chime in.

    Anyone have any update on the sugarloaf meeting last night and the west mountain expansion?

    The Funiflame is an interesting project. I’ve thought for a while that Les Trois Vallees ought to do something like that, at a minimum connecting the train station at Moutiers to the existing gondola at Brides Les Bains. Extend it to Champagne En Vanoise and you’ve made the backdoor connection to Les Arcs and La Plagne.

    I hope nobody here would consider it, but just the same I’m putting out my somewhat-annual reminder not to go climbing into lift terminals, motor rooms, and especially up towers. That stunt that the guy up in Whistler pulled is pretty dangerous.
