    Looks similar to Franz’s up at Whistler.

    It would be cool if they replaced Painter Boy with a detachable lift from the base to Umbrella Bar. It would reduce the number of lifts to get out to Prospector/Gold Link and help with out-of-base capacity. Plus, it would have some mellow, lappable terrain for beginners and low-intermediates.

      There are some condos that would be in the way. But it could be doable.

    Any chance of this chair being upgraded in the near future?
