      Maybe some of the towers are on the lifts at Mt Baldy.

      There is only one tower left standing from Bum’s Gulch. It can be seen on the westbound side of the Mt. Rose Hwy between Sky Tavern and Slide Mountain Road (Winters Creek Lodge side of Mt. Rose). I’ll try to head up there and get a picture to share.

    Will they have to upgrade capacity on wizard for the two stage detachable?

    The master plan for Mt. Rose was to have the a detachable quad go from where the Ponderosa lift base was located (now where Wizard lift base is located) to about 300 feet above the end of the Galena lift. The existing Galena lift was to then be relocated to the “Slide side” to operate parallel to Zephyr 6 to service the Double Down terrain park. This may explain why the Ponderosa name was not retained when it was shifted to a different alignment and renamed Wizard. However, Mt. Rose seems to have shifted its focus to get the Atoma expansion completed first, so it may become a priority to work on this part of the master plan after Atoma is completed..

      I forgot to mention the plan included moving the top of Lakeview about 200 feet further uphill to allow better access to Wild Card.
