    Anyone have pics of the old 4/5 unload ramp?

      Probably in a shoebox somewhere. It was ridiculously tall, as I remember, and I was always nervous driving a cat on it to groom the ramp.

        Teaching my best friend to ski in the mid 90s, he lost a ski at loading on his first ride up on 5. He of course ate it at the offload, nearly crashing off the side of the double-black offload ramp as I leapt out of the way.
