    This place once proposed to build an expansion with a high-speed quad chairlift, and several (double?) chairlifts. It seems it never got off the ground.

      I don’t know why it needed to be a HSQ or why they needed to install so many chairs back there. One 5,000′ long used double or triple would do the job just fine.

        It does seem very overkill to have a high-speed quad, plus 6 additional fixed grips. One double (or triple) seems like it would serve the terrain just fine.

          Plus that terrain would be very steep so only advanced and experts would be going back there. I think a triple or a low capacity HSQ would be fine.

        Maybe this is moot if they aren’t pursuing anything, but with any proposal on public land, a common strategy is to over-propose so one has the ability to compromise in theory without compromising in reality. At one point, I think right when Boyne took over, CM proposed a tram to the top of the King, but they let that go while gaining clearance for several upgraded lifts and two new lift lines. They also let go of lift-access mtb as well as the Park’s tacit tolerance of controlling/skiing Kemper’s, while in theory retaining the East Peak pod. This may have been a similar tack for Baldy.
