This type of “pre-show” maze area is rare at ski resorts but common at theme parks.

    Is this the only high-speed-six in Idaho?

    I think this was the only detachable at Schweitzer to have footrests prior to the Cedar Park Express’s construction.

    There’s a part of me that gets the feeling Schweitzer might consider giving Stella a capacity boost with a potential increase in traffic brought on by Cedar Park’s addition.

    This seems like an odd place for them to have installed a six pack given their lift system at the time of installation. Their main lifts were a yan HSQ and 3 riblet center poles yet they decided to go all out and splurge on a six pack to replace this chair (which also is the furthest from the base area). IMO it would have made a ton more sense to replace Chair one or Snow Ghost.

      I think the reason was due to weather conditions. Schweitzer is prone to high winds, but the terrain off of Stella is fairly protected and while the majority of other lifts being closed, Great Escape and Stella could operate. The terrain off of Stella is also heavily used by the local race team.
