    Just rode this lift last week. Thanks to the cliff it’s one of the scariest chairs I’ve ever ridden, very similar to Whistler’s peak chair. But great location, it really transforms how you ski this area of the resort.

      If you ride middle bowl triple at snowbasin. the lift line gets super high because it crosses a trail that is in a small ravine/canyon. I been on peak express at whistler blackcomb and it did not scare me but was super fun to ride. Middle bowl I hold on extra tight because its the only lift a snowbasin without restraining bars. Its also the oldest at snowbasin since wildcat got replaced.
