    I normally would not say that a lift like this will likely get an upgrade to a detachable quad, but given its similarities with Quarter Dollar and Dollar, both of whom went detachable over a decade ago, and the fact its base is surrounded by tens of millions of dollars of real estate, I would not be surprised if it occurred at some point in the future.

      Perhaps.. we might see some sort of deal worked out with Doppie to replace this, Half Dollar, (or they eliminate half dollar altogether) Lookout on Bald Mountain, or maybe eliminate Lookout, and upgrade Mayday to a HSQ? So eliminate Half Dollar and Lookout (the lift to nowhere) and upgrade Elkhorn and Mayday. Personally I would like to see Lookout remain.. even if it is the lift to nowhere.. it’s a nice peaceful slow and steady ride.

    Elkhorn has been closed for much if not all of this season it seems.

    Opened up this week, and Sun Valley posted about it on their FB page. Good to see her turning again.

      Still running in late March. Glad to see it appears to be back in regular operation!
