    This lift should be removed and replaced with a new chair from the base to the top of Beaver Bowl. The terrain up there is fantastic and underutilized. The one negative I see is that it would only serve advanced terrain, but Squaw/Alpine has never shied from adding lifts aimed only at expert skiers.

      A solution to that could be a mid station where this lift currently ends. That would also allow you to make continuous laps of the terrain without skiing down the Kangaroo run.

      The only thing about it is that I believe Squaw/Alpine likes to keep the bowls and that uncrowned to preserve the snow. I believe that’s one of the reasons why the Broken Arrow Chair At Squaw Dosent Run much. So they probably would not want to built a lift like this.

        That’s a fair point with Broken Arrow, but they do have a couple lifts with similar terrain as Beaver. Headwall Express immediately comes to mind.
