    I believe this lift began operating and was constructed in 1995. I went on and #27 wasn’t on the 1994 trail map, but it appears on the 1995 one.

    I believe this lift is used by the local alpine race club only.

      It’s open to the public and is used to serve the EpicMix racing course, similar to Nastar at non-Vail mountains.
