    Unless the Vail shakeup changes thing, they've stated on record over and over Ego, or another fixed grip lift in its location will never be removed. Without a fixed grip option on the Main Face and...

    No need to apologize, I could go on about Brodie for hours. Other than a couple pictures, all I have are memories of a place I spent the majority of my youth winter.

    The Ts were still in when they added the second summit double, but I just went back into the skimaps and it appears the Upper T DID go away at some point. They did not share the same liftline though....

    Both diesels (if equipped) cannot and do not operate simultaneously - they are typically on different shafts and use different controls. The Diesel Prime Mover (if equipped) is appropriately sized in...

    You're right was there a J all the way to the left with a lower and upper Tbar to their right? That's what I remember.

    I skied there many times as a youth as part of the Tristate race program. Always will remember the quarry (next to the race trail), the red chairs, and tbars on the far left.

    You're actually supposed to start the diesel APU up (the real one, not a secondary diesel prime mover if equipped) every day prior to opening to ensure correct operation.

    Don't you think replacing Nitro with it would be a wiser choice? That Main Face already has serious uphill capacity, assuming a reliable GSE.

    The dawn patrol seems to be there every morning this year, and again after close. Perhaps because it was the only hill in the area with skiiable snow on it until the past few weeks.

    The moral of the story if you're not there every day and rough "timing" does not portray an accurate overall picture. As Win said, there are many reasons why a lift is running slower or faster one...

    I guess Boyne keeps my head scratching.
