    Clearly I am missing something: who would be doing downloading with enough volume that Snowbowl would need to make this chair more downloady? I have never skied here, regardless of desire, so all I gots is that good Goooooogle Earth presumptiveness. TV Mountain appears eminently skiable.

      I don’t ski here either, but this lift is very steep and there is some beginner and intermediate terrain on TV Mountain. Perhaps the ski area also wants to do some summer activity in the future.

      Likely because the terrain on the front side of the TV is pretty damn steep, with the lift line itself featuring some very large cliffs that are likely to intimidate some of the beginner skiers headed for the intermediate terrain on the backside of TV. With that being said, the Bowl has always been an experts only mountain, so I can’t imagine the downloading will be done in any large quantities.
