      Not to make this a pi**ing contest, but FIS says “cancelled.”

      “Event organizer Canada Snowboard is currently working with the FIS to evaluate the possibility of hosting the competition during the current season, the FIS said.”

    Hopefully Angel at Sunshine is replaced with a 6 pack. Would be great to also get bubbles like in Teepee town. This is quite a cold ride up many days.

      6 pack bubble is the rumour :)

        And that would bring the total number of heated bubble chairlifts in Canada, to an astounding 2… both at Sunshine.

          It is only a third or fourth hand rumour so who really knows – might just be dreaming. I would actually prefer a bubble quad – 6 packs are too big for my liking. Due to parks I can not see a capacity increase so maybe a 6 pack also does not make sense for that reason.
          Tyler, I do wonder why the new one at Louise was not a bubble …

          If they really wanted an HSS they could decrease the number of chairs so it would be 2800/h.

      Relocating it slightly closer towards Divide would provide more wind protection.

      A 6 pack would also reduce wind closure.

      The new 6-pack that was built services all of its terrain thus making it redundant. No need for extra costs of running a lift no one will ride.

    I think Silverton is only asking to put in one new chairlift that would take the place of two previously planned surface lifts. Peter, please correct the incorrect statement,

      If you had read even a little bit on Page 63, you would have seen the line where it says that “the attached amended PUD maps [are] depicting the location of Lift 2 . . .” The map doesn’t show the other future lift, but had you read, you would have seen that Silverton says that they have changed their minds, and would like to “amend the PUD at this time to utilize chairlift technology instead of surface lift technology for the TWO future lifts”

        You are right and I misread there. Any ideas as to the location of the lift that isn’t present on the map?

          No, I don’t, sorry. Maybe somebody else who is more familiar with the area is.
