    With the combined capacity of 2980 pph on the North Face, these lifts are in need of replacement. A 3600 pph HSS should solve many of the issues over here. Personally, I have seen an increase of people skiing on this side of the mountain in the recent years. Lines at North Face become unbearable on some days, even when both triples are running. The idea of having two triples is pretty redundant in my opinion. I think they should run a six-pack up the line of Outpost and call it a day. My two cents.

      Vail will not build a single lift. They want to milk the Northeast. Even if they were open to building lifts in the east, they wouldn’t build any that serve only expert terrain like The North Face because they don’t like expert skiers. Only families because they spend the most money at their western resorts.

        I’m just waiting for Alterra to buy or partner with a ski mountain very close to NYC (Camelback, Mountain Creek, Windham, etc.) so they can truly dominate the northeast and force Vail to invest in their mountain infrastructure. Sunbrook and Outpost/Challenger need high-speed replacements at Mount Snow, Toll House and Mountain/Lookout should go detachable at Stowe to alleviate parking issues and FourRunner’s massive lines, respectively, A/B need to go detachable at Okemo, Summit is plagued with problems and needs to go detachable at Attitash, etc. A lot of lifts need replacement and Vail won’t do anything.
