    When you try to access the skyline express pictures it redirects you to a wordpress login.

    Do you know anything about the status of new lifts at Stevens Pass? It seems like they are due for quite the upgrade in the lift department. Now that their lift tickets are almost the same price as Crystal, you would think that they would invest that money into lift infrastructure.

    Stevens Pass’ assets are owned by EPR Properties (a hedge fund) and they are the ones responsible for any capital improvements. The difference between Stevens Pass Ski Area and EPR Properties is that Stevens Pass is the operator and EPR the owner and if EPR doesn’t feel capital improvements will increase its bottom line, no new lifts are on the horizon. The best part is that if the USFS permit expires for an expansion or new lift, the resort has to refile and do a complete new environmental protection study which is not cheap. Usually a permit is good for 10 years, but before you can get final approval, you have to meet a certain amount of skier visits.

    Both Brooks and Daisy have both received new paint on the chairs. Both lifts now have gray colored chairs.

      That’s a shame. Brooks being turquoise and Daisy being purple was one of the cool things about Stevens. I suppose now that VR owns them everything will be that same nondescript shade of grey.

    It should also be noted that the Skyline Express and Hogsback Express chairlifts were repainted to have the same color scheme as Jupiter Express, and also have new, larger lift shacks that are also painted in that color scheme.

    Did the old Jupiter end up at another mountain?

      I think it is in storage for future use at Stevens. At least pre-Vail it was. Will need new tower tubes in its new home.

        I wonder if they’ll use that for the new Daisy quad, assuming they still have it.

        It might be going to Mission Ridge.

        I’ve heard that Mission bought a lift from Stevens a few years ago for Windy Ridge.

        At this point, it’s just a rumor, though.

    How much shorter is Skyline with the movement of the bottom terminal to accommodate the Brooks Express?
