        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.

    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.
