    This lift never operates, even in good snow years. Part of the problem is that it is not contiguous with the rest of MH East. Although it is shown on the trail map i would classify it as non operational

    This lift is effectively “out-of-service”. Please update your list. It has not been run in a couple of decades, that I can remember anyway.
    It always looks lonely – like “why is nobody riding me?” This part of the resort would make a fantastic dedicated tubing/snowplay area, but instead the lift is abandoned. Mothballed. Neglected. It could also be extended to go to the top of the mountain, but that would have a snowball’s chance in hell of happening. This lift should be removed from the list of active lifts.

      It ran in the last 8-9 years b/c I took my daughter on it when she was 4-5 years old. But haven’t seen it in operation since then. Not sure that terrain is steep enough for tubing though – painfully flat even for a tubing park. Would be ideal for snow play though to keep that activity away from the main base. Ultimately, MH isn’t really committed to operating MH East as a ski area anymore outside of skimming the cream when big storms hit and they need the extra capacity, so crowding the base area isn’t really a consideration for them.
