      I wonder when powder monkey will be coming

        I think it’s going to stay the same Thiokol triple, but there may be a plan to bring back Hawthorne as an intermediate ski area with a 6 pack chairlift.

          A six pack may be overkill, unless they can cut more than the two trails that were originally there. In my opinion, I hope they put more investment in the Western territory, which already has a lift and is pretty underutilized.

          Maybe A Doppelmayr Fixed Grip Quad Instead

    Merrill Hill will be a fixed-grip triple or quad. There is a rumor of them moving either White Cap or Aurora over and then replacing one of those two respective lifts with a detachable quad, but I am not sure of its validity.

      Merrill Hill will be a fixed triple

    Curious on the West Mountain Express shown as a CLD at Sugarloaf. I see there is a CLD-6 for the West Mountain slated for 2021. Their plan shows a shortening of west mountain. I think I assumed they would just take the current lift and move the top terminal to midstation. Seems unlikely a detach would go there. Though more condos will be built on the skiers right of West Mountain this would be a high-speed lift serving one trail for ski-in-ski-out mostly.

      I meant to move the new lift from the 2021 list to 2022 after hearing Karl Strand on a podcast. Unlikely the current West Mountain lift will be replaced any time soon. It’s going to be awhile before we have clarity on many 2021 projects, let alone 2022.

    Do you think California Express and red dog will get done in 2022?

      It won’t happen until a summer after Squaw changes it’s name


      • Anthony January 1, 2021 / 7:08 pm

        I actually think it would make a great project to do the same summer the name change is implemented (i.e., 2021). Especially if they decide to do away with the name “Alpine Meadows” and combine the resorts under one name and brand.
