    Anyone have any info on what the skytrac and the MND in the spreadsheet will be?

    Shouldn’t Wild Blue Stage II be on the 2022 list?

      I listened to the tram board meeting and the timeline sounded uncertain. The lower section and possibly the lower terminal of the second section are being installed in 2022. The rest of the second section is looking more like 2023 but that is subject to change. It’s a massive project.

    Would love to see Mt. Hood Express happen in 2022. The Forest Service is set to approve the project in October because of the minimal environmental impact. Pucci @ Timberline was approved on a similar timeframe (from proposal to approval to construction) so I am still hopeful…

    In a podcast, I thought that Sugarloaf GM said that West Mountain Express would be a “signature lift”. Well that certainly changed…. It had sounded like they wanted to use the revamped Bullwinkle’s restaurant for weddings and conference space. But that’s not going to work well if they aren’t using an enclosed lift.

      The most unsurprising thing to happen this year.
