    Interesting that they went with the traditional footrests after going with the puck kind on Orient.

      You and I have different definitions of “interesting”.

    Because you took this very recently, will you be going to all ski resorts in the caribou and northern regions of BC?

    Why not HSQ? I like Sunpeaks (but still Tob Mountian to me!) yet they do not seem to like detachables. Maybe Orient as FGQ is OK as it is more a realestate lift, but the New Crystal really required a HSQ. And dont get me going on Burfield as a FGQ!
