    This lift is longer than most people think. It has the whole beginning, plus the part over the ridge. It also looks small on the map

      It’s all a matter of perspective.

      I think this is the only lift to deal with looking shorter than it actually is when you view the map, due to its location. Though this also seems true of Catskinner.

        After riding Jersey Cream I thought the same. It looks pretty short when looking at it in real life.

    As the sole way over to Rendezvous and Seventh Heaven from the Glacier, Excelerator, and Crystal Ridge areas, it makes sense that what would’ve been Eagle 6 will be used next year to upgrade Jersey Cream.

    I’m assuming this one’s just gonna be scrapped based on its age?


    • Aussierob06 October 1, 2022 / 7:37 pm

      Yes. Some parts to keep, but mostly scrap steel.

    I’m surprised this lift is getting replaced instead of Excelerator, as that’s what feeds into Glacier Creek coming off of Excalibur. It is older so that could be part of it, but if that was the case you’d think Vail would opt to replace 7th Heaven instead (glad they didn’t tho, I love that lift).

    This lift is the centre of spring skiing, how will it work without it? Going to be hard to cross the mountain especially with no Horstman Tbar anymore. And it was used for summer skiing last year too.


    • Donald Reif February 28, 2023 / 3:34 pm

      I imagine they’ll probably suspend spring skiing for the summer, or limit things to Glacier, Crystal Ridge and Excelerator.


      • Myles February 28, 2023 / 4:13 pm

        If they replace this summer skiing will definitely be suspended since at the end of the day skiers can’t ski down glacier because there is not enough snow and there is no more horstman tbar so in a hypothetical scenario where glacier is being replaced skiers can’t take horstman to 7th heaven, download it, and then take a bus to wherever.


        • Aussierob February 28, 2023 / 5:02 pm

          There is going to be Spring and Summer skiing. Logistical nightmare but it will happen.


        • kaden01m February 28, 2023 / 11:49 pm

          Aussierob – what will access for both spring and summer skiing look like this year?
          I would guess everyone going from Crystal/Glacier to Catskinner/7th will have to go through BG Midstation? and maybe the old 7th heaven buses from BG Mid to Glacier for summer?


        • Aussierob March 1, 2023 / 6:23 pm

          JC will be open until May long weekend for Spring skiing. For the summer operation, campers will be bussed down to Mid BG or Excalibur to down load. Or something like that.
