    I can’t wait for the day they make this a high speed detachable. Same with Peak 5. It gets so backed up at the bottom of both lifts during peak hours. It would greatly improve flow through that area.

    With 17 towers, it must be around 3300ft or so in length? Doesn’t say yet on the specs page.

      Elsewhere, I have seen this lift listed as 3280 ft in length with a capacity of 2000.

    This was originally built as the Saddleback quad in a slightly different alignment when this was still Wolf Mountain in 1996. Then it was relocated to become Raptor when American Skiing Company opened as The Canyons in 1997. When ASC ran out of money trying to build out their expansion, they relocated it again to be Dreamscape, which was originally on the master plan as a high speed quad. When Raptor was in place, Golden Eagle (a 1968 Riblet double running roughly parallel) didn’t run. When Dreamscape was built, the only other way up the mountain besides the Red Pine gondola was Golden Eagle, which now was back in service for 10 more years until the Orange Bubble chair was built. The tension tower from the old Raptor bottom terminal was left there for years after the relocation (as was the old tension terminal for Golden Eagle, which remained until the golf course was built in 2015. Raptor ended right next (feet away) from the vault drive of Golden Eagle on a narrow ridgeline where the Orange Bubble midstation is now.
