    Is this just me, or is the Outpost, and this lift, in particular, the best intermediate laps you can take at Mammoth, with a slow, beautiful lift ride back up on this lift?

      In my opinion, I think either this lift or chair 23 should be upgraded to a DTQ, but I would probably favor chair 23 to be a DTQ before this lift.

        Disagree strongly re: Ch 23. You don’t want a detatchable lift with the winds up there, IMO. And between the gondola and Ch. 14, there is already enough capacity transporting skiers to that zone.

        I do agree with the comment above though. For my money, Ch 14 does offer some of the best true intermediate laps on the mountain. I could do Road Runner to Santiago all day and not get bored.
