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

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

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:
