    With the amount of terrain this epic Hall services, that upcoming North T-Bar will vastly improve access to the area.

    What lift at Sunshine was this lift?

      Being a hall double, it had to be either Angel or Great Divide. Angel had a vertical drop of 660 whereas Great Divide had a drop 1160 (and tamarack has a drop of 1300). Because of this, it was probably Great Divide.
