    Solitude is screwing up by replacing this lift they should replace Powderhorn instead. This lift means a lot to me and to see it go will be ashame. I am hoping to get some parts from the lift. I wonder if this lift will be scrapped or could be sold. This lift is still one hell of a machine. This one will most likely effect me in a bad way. This i feel like will be summit again knowing that lift was also one hell of a machine. Same with all those other lifts. I really care for this lift and I hope it gets another chance in life.

    They should extend this lift with a midstation to provide as alternate access to the Brighton interconnect and/or evergreen peak.

      (When they replace it with a high speed quad)

    2019 but they can’t really expand the area because the area behind is basically a cliff

    When this lift is replaced with a detachable quad, I really hope they move the bottom terminal closer to the village.

    why would they replace it, sure the lift itself is long but it has no lines and the actual skiable terrain is accessible from all the other lifts.

    The idea is to decrease lines elsewhere by drawing skiers here. Maybe also competition with Brighton? Anyways, Alterra doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to replace this lift.
