    Has a lift to the summit of peak 9 or peak 10 ever been considered?

      Too much wind exposure.

    Does Breckinridge have plans to expand farther down on peak 6?

      Not anytime soon, since I don’t think that lower down on Peak 6 is anything that’s within the resort’s alotted boundaries.

    Your numbers on the chart for Quicksilver Super6 are off. It’s 17 towers and 105 chairs.

      Actually make that 107 chairs.

    Something to add to the notes on Lift D’s entry: part of Lift D still remains, having been repurposed for lift evacuation training, containing a few Riblet chairs and a Poma Competition chair. It’s off to your right on the Beaver Run SuperChair right after you go under the Peak 8 SuperConnect.

    On Lift B’s entry, I want to note that the vault for the lift’s top drive can still be found at the top of the Mercury SuperChair.

    It’s in German, but here’s a video with lots of footage of Quicksilver Quad. You can even see things like how the Sundown trail wasn’t cut until the Beaver Run SuperChair was built (until 1990 there was a big gap between Columbia and American), and how the bottom terminal was in a building identical to the top terminal building. From 1:15 to 1:19, there’s even a brief glimpse of the loading area for Lift D, the Beaver Run SuperChair’s predecessor:

    What’s with the “Peak 7 Infill” lift on the “2020 New Lifts” spreadsheet that’s pending Forest Service approval?

    I think that Lift D was a bottom drive lift.

    The Independence SuperChair’s numbers need to be corrected, as the numbers listed on this chart show the lift as built in 2002, and do not reflect its extension in 2008. It was 7,149 feet prior to 2008. Now it’s 7,500 feet long. It also now has 24 towers, not 23. And six chairs were added, bringing the total of chairs from 113 to 119 chairs.
