    This lift is always so crowded, and nothing in their MDP seems to be offering a solution, they’re just adding more lifts, which is just going to bring more people here, and while stuff would be more spread out, it doesn’t really solve the crowding issue. They need to upgrade this lift to a high speed six, and probably do the same with Skyline, and move these lifts to Brooks and Kehrs, and have them both start lower on the mountain. Although, Hogsback is always pretty crowded at the top too, and upgrading capacity could add to this problem. Perhaps they build another lodge?

      Well part of the reason Hogsback is so crowded is because the lift is designed for 1000 fpm, while they usually run it only at 800. Since they just got a new high speed quad (brooks express), I don’t see them replacing this especially because they have other lifts that should be replaced such as Kerhs.

        The upgrades of Daisy and Brooks ought to remove some of the crowds from Hogsback. Of course, Hogsback is the first of two lifts you’ll have to take if you’re headed to the back side.

    So, I know the grips come from Garaventa, but is everything else CTEC-designed?
