    Any plan to post pictures of the lift(s) at Hurricane Ridge?

      Yes, I still need to get to Hurricane Ridge, Badger Mountain, Echo Valley and Loup Loup in Washington.

        Don’t forget Sitzmark Ski Area near Tonasket, they have an old Riblet double.

          Didn’t know about that one! Tonasket is way up there but I will make the trip eventually. Washington is my home state after all.

          Sitzmark did not operate this past season citing lift maintenance issues. I wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes a lost area.

    Would you be able to split the Snoqualmie mountains into separate entries? It’s a bit hard to tell which lifts are at which mountains without having to look at a trail map.

    Posted this in the about, but I’m thinking it’s better noted here:

    The Central Washington State Fairgrounds in Yakima has what appears to be a Riblet center-pole double with safety bars crossing over the grounds. It’s called the Sundola. Probably installed around 1995, given that the fair’s site notes that there was a contest to name it that year.

    Only runs during the week of the fair as far as I know.

        Great! Just wanted to make sure.

        Love those old Riblets.

        I normally ski at White Pass, and when Great White broke down on the last Saturday of the year, I was excited because that meant they’d probably run Chair 2. Then the wind scuttled those plans. :/

    I’m curious about whether anyone has scoped out potential ski area building sites near Republic/Sherman Pass. I’m envisioning a ski area with terrain similar to Loup Loup and either a single T-Bar/Poma or double. I believe an optimal base area location would be either at Jungle Hill Campground itself, or adjacent to the unused parking lot to the southeast of it. The chairlift could then go up on the small knob to the southwest (tops out at 5200 feet) or even higher. Here are some liftlines that I had in mind. https://imgur.com/a/jjXy4hH

    Curious about what you guys think.
