    This lift replaced the Needle’s Eye Double Chair with a different alignment. The old double was parallel with Skyeship all the way up the Needle’s Eye trail to the ski patrol building on the opposite side of the wind fence from the current Skye Peak Express top terminal. The reasoning for the realignment downhill was to better distribute skiers, as the old lift, combined with Skye Peak and Skyeship, dropped a ton of people off in a relatively small space, resulting in trails like Great Eastern being absolutely packed with people trying to reach intermediate or advanced lapping trails.
