    Where was the second midstation on the red lift?

      If you’re talking about the Platinum lift, which at the beginning was called red, “unload ramp number two” is the top. You’re probably talking about the older chair, which I don’t know

        Ahh I found it. It was a mid load station above the face so you could lap the upper part of the mountain on only blues and not have to take a catwalk or the black to the bottom.

    I heard from some staff here that in the next two years, they are clearing some more gladed runs. One would run between Downtown and Miners Alley/Tailings, and the other would run from the turn on Copper Toll Road to the top of Boomtown Face.

    Currently, the only glade run is Sluce Box Glade which is imo the hardest run on the mountain, so hopefully these two will be a little easier to give less experienced people a better intro to tree skiing.

      That’s great to hear! I was beginning to wonder when they would comb though that area (especially in summers when the fire danger was extremely high – all those dead trees and whatnot makes for great kindling)

      Not to mention that would provide more runs that leads to the copper chair which in my opinion is underutilized.

    Sounds like the copper chair is finally being taken out in the summer of 2022.

    Better get in those runs on the lift while you still can

      Sounds like it’ll be another doppelmayr triple (like the platinum chair that replaced the red chair in 2009)

    You might want to switch the Tiegel and Red chair dates. Red was actually built in 1968 because it would’ve had tapered towers. The Tiegel lift was also called Red as well.

      I will agree, the old Red Riblet did not have tapered towers before it was replaced, possibly a relocation from elsewhere. Regarding the Tiegel, I can’t find anything on where it was located but it was most likely not the old Red lift due to its short length.

      Upon further review, it looks like Copper is the relocation rather than the old Red. Copper does not show up on trail maps until 1999.

      also to add to that Copper was installed sometime between 1992 and 1997.
