    I have had to ride it before as the Bethlehem Quad was down then you took the Fabyan's triple to the top. Also another time late season when the top was not open so the B ran and also Zephyr

    Fabyans’s from the top is a bizarrely underskied trail. On a pow day there are mounds of soft snow that won’t be skied off for days after.

    You aren't missing much. It has probably been 20 years or so for me. It was slow and stopped a lot. I recall it having a sign on one of the towers that said, "You are Leaving the Town of Bretton Woods and Entering Twin Mountain" or something like that.

    I rode the B lift as a kid. I still remember the ride when I was with another child, slightly older, and we could not lower the bar. So we rode the entire way with the bar up. Terrified.

    My father tried skiing about 25 years ago and he had the same experience on the old Mount Oscar Double. He was petrified!

    Agreed. We've gotten "first tracks" on Upper Express many times, and most of them were far from our first run of the day!
