    They must be looking to increase their vertical claim with that useless trail pod at the bottom.
    I also do the Twitters.

    They stand to gain just under 250' of vertical drop if you believe my placement and google earth's elevations. Looks like a consistent easy pitch for a mile with 850 vert, I think it would be a beginner/intermediate favorite. My interpretation of their proposed lift:




    It should compare nicely to a well known and popular competitor's beginner/intermediate lift.

    I'm pretty certain the primary purpose of that lift is to service real estate and there won't be much ski terrain. You probably are right in that they will advertise additional vertical

    It's a mile long, so it will either be detachable or painfully slow. If it's a detachable, I'd be surprised if there wasn't relatively major terrain also. My vote is with this is an actual terrain expansion over there, not just a real estate project with supporting lift.

    Maybe. Thought I saw a master plan drawing with just a lift and a couple trail serving a bunch of RE. Thought Bob said they saved the Spear lift also

    Ouch, if there is any lift that should be sent to the scrap heap it's that one. I won't be surprised if you guys are right about the real estate and vertical bump rather than serious pod.

    I agree.......unless its only being used to access a RE development.

    Curious what work is going on right now on Pinnacle

    The chairs are on!

    Here is some more improvements for this season:
    -2 new restaurants
    - Elmwood lodge renovations
    -New houses being built in the barnyard area
    -Six pack lift was repainted
    -BRAND NEW glades in the ravine!


    The lift going down to New Canada Rd will most likely be a carpet system lift, something similar to Skyline quad at sugaloaf.
    Pinnacle peak will have a high speed quad.
