    Will this lift run during busy times?

      It probably will but I see it as very unnecessary. The slope will already be full from just the quad. Plus, this lift will be stopping constantly considering the likely clientele of this place. Heck, I’m an expert and ski all around the country and haven’t ridden a platter in a few years.

    I think they should run this lift on sellout days and add a mid station at the top of the terrain park. Not hard to do that on a surface lift.

      Why does there need to be a mid station? Couldn’t you just bail when you want?

    They test this lift every morning, but as of 12/31, they have not yet run it for public. I think they may end up increasing the number of tickets because there have been multiple sellout situations and they still haven’t felt they needed it to reduce lines at the quad.

    This lift has been frequently used since the reopening on September 1st to help with physical distancing.

      Can confirm, was there today and it was loading. Shortened lines at both lifts and didn’t overcrowd the slope as the quad was rarely loading full chairs anyways. It’s spring break week for NJ’s public schools so I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a sellout day
