    Why isn’t this lift open to the public?

      Possibly because of the steepness on the lift line? I assume many people riding a platter with a grade like that would constantly fall.

      I think Patrol just uses it for emergency access to the ridge and to conduct avalanche control.

        Patrol use it for standard access. It’s 15-20 minutes straight uphill if you hike like the rest of us, and we aren’t carrying anything other than skis or a backpack.

        As to why they don’t let the public up, gotta earn your turns.
