    They claim on their trail map this is the “Longest Detachable Quad in the Northeast” which is just flat out wrong

      This lift is 7350 feet long and is the longest skiable detachable quad in the Northeast US. The only longer detachable quad is Slide Brook (11012 feet) which can’t be lapped. The next longest detachable quads in the Northeast US are Grand Summit at Mount Snow (7320), and the Adirondack Express at Gore (7079). They are also the only other detachable quads that exceed 7000 feet. The White Peaks Express at Waterville Valley had an original length of 7532 feet which made it the longest, but it was shortened to under 6000 in 1997. There are 3 detachable quads in Quebec that are longer than this lift, those being Grand Point (8390) and Maillard (8061) at Le Massif, and Duncan at Tremblant (7670).

    When we skied here, the top section along the ridge was the windiest and coldest lift I’ve ever been on.

    This lift earns it’s local name: The Freezer . Once you are exposed on the ridge it is 2-3 minutes of blasting wind and whatever is also falling from the sky. For this reason, it is also often closed or on hold.
