      A low capacity six-pack would be a good idea here. This is an excellent blue pod and should receive more traffic given the lines at the main base. A high-speed lift would definitely draw more people over.

        They are working to bring more snowmaking to some trails over here this year in an attempt to open this pod earlier without the need for natural snow. Mount Snow has also stated many times that ‘Sunbrook is our most logical replacement’, signifying that plans for a new lift are in the works. Wether or not they go with a four or six is wtill unkown. I think an HSQ will cut it on Sunbrook, howver I think if any area of the mountain deserves a six-pack, it’s North Face. Both triples, although reliable, are pretty slow and somewhat difficult to load. I think they should take both out and op for a high speed six.

          It was in the works under Peak Resorts, but Vail will not build a single lift in the Northeast as they want to milk the region. Unfortunately this means Sunbrook will always be underutilized because people don’t want a 10+ minute ride on the quad.
