    This lift really has to go detachable soon. There are a number of fantastic trails off this lift, it serves Cloud Dine, and it is literally at the center of the entire resort. Park City has two heavily trafficked areas: north of Tombstone/Ninety-Nine 90 and everything that is legacy Powdr owned PCMR. The vast area in between is really only used for transiting between the two via Quicksilver/Iron Mountain. Enticing more skiers to stay in this area with a detachable lift would ease congestion elsewhere in the resort by more effectively spreading everyone out.

      I agree 100% but I think the reason it won’t is because it crosses Colony property, and the owners don’t want the noise of a detachable lift or something.

        The new Direct drive d-line have little to no noise. The thing is doppelmayr doesn’t create CLD-4 D-Line chairlift terminals. They probably could but it would be expensive.

        The people residing on the Colony agreed to live within an active ski area, so they really don’t have a right to complain.

        I know it is not a noise issue. At Deer Valley, Jordanelle’s top terminal is directly next to a Deer Crest house and Tombstone/Quicksilver are both next to Colony homes. It stems from the fact that it wasn’t heavily utilized until Canyons and legacy Park City were connected and Cloud Dine was expanded. Vail just hasn’t invested the money yet.
