    The profile of the first few towers out of the loading area kinda reminds me of a Riblet lift.

    I think this lift useful for getting out of Mary Jane. I think a hsq can add more uphill capacity.

      A high speed quad would certainly make access from Mary Jane back to the Winter Park area a bit quicker since one could then bypass Lunch Rock.

    I think this lift, alongside Pony Express, should be replaced with a detachable lift from the Mary Jane Base to Sunspot. It would be effective in getting more people out of Mary Jane and better spreading them out around the mountain.
