This lift has some high potential should Stowe develop the base area there and install a high speed quad or high speed six here.
It really is a wasted opportunity. Most people would probably prefer to see a detachable lift here to get cars off of Route 108 earlier, but the value of the land at the base is also incredibly high in the current market and Vail could make a ton of money selling it to a developer who commits to installing a detachable lift to help boost real estate values.
I think they should put a pulse quad here, kind of like the one at snow valley in Alberta CA: https://liftblog.com/wish-bone-snow-valley-ab/
It would have the same lowing capacity but with the speed and convenience of a high speed quad
If they were to build a new lift here, it should come with a new base area, which would include parking. In that case, a pulse quad would be overloaded.
