    This lift rarely runs now, because of staffing and the fact that everything can be accessed by any of he other lifts, while not as direct. Still a nice lift to have tho and cool because Riblets are relatively rare in the east.

    Peter, I don’t have twitter so I will reply here. Yes this lift STILL doesn’t have chairs on it. This summer they installed a new haul rope. The chairs are sitting in the snow around the base terminal in IMHO an unsafe manner as they narrow both the right side of Zero G and the left side of lower Plutos/Shooting Star whatever it’s called. There has been 0 evidence of work on this lift since it opened.

    In other news, Valley Quad was also closed for a long time but opened one day over the MLK weekend. Allegedly they were waiting on a part. I cannot believe a company the size of Vail doesn’t have a stock of spare parts. I think opening Valley was just a reaction to the long lines on Sunday.

      Crotched has been hit especially hard by the massive Vail staff shortages this season. You may already know this, but they are completely closing on Mondays and Tuesdays. This is probably why no work has been done to get Rover up and running so far. As for the Valley Quad, it is possible that Vail actually does have a stock of spare parts, but they simply haven’t had the staff to do the required work to get it open until this weekend, and they just said they were waiting on the part. Vail is doing something simillar with Attitash by not running the double-doubles, citing they need to prepare them for replacement when it does not take a whole winter and summer to remove a lift.
