    Resort Improvements 2015

    I don't think anyone has started one of these threads yet this year. What changes/improvements/expansions are taking place this year in the east. I'm ignoring snowmaking upgrades for now as it seems every mountain upgrades their system every year.



    Confirmed:
    Sugarbush - New Valley house Quad replaces Valley House Double
    Cannon - Continued development of racing facilities at Mittersill (Is the T bar going in this year?)
    Stratton - Main Base Lodge expansion and renovation after the fire this year.
    Burke - Completion of the Hotel
    Haystack - New Six Pack replaces Barnstormer Triple
    Killington - Mountain Coaster at Snowshed

    Rumored:
    Sunapee - Replace North Peak Triple with former Snowbowl Quad. Move North Peak Triple to backside of North Peak. (no word on this yet, delayed?)
    Waterville - Green Peak expansion. (seems to be approved but no work yet on it not even tree clearing, probably delayed)
    Bromley - Upgrade Sun Peak Express chairs to be bubble chairs. (heard about this from a local, could just be a wild rumor)
    Sugarloaf - Replace/Upgrade/Fix King Pine Quad. (something is going to be done with this lift, we just don't know what yet)
    Loon - Beginner Pod at South Peak. (approved, but probably still a year or two until this gets built

    What else is happening?

    Barnstormer chair (being replaced by the new six pack) from The Hermitage was bought by West Mountain along with another drive unit. West plans to replace/upgrade their aged infrastructure.

    Berkshire East terrain expansion possibly. I don't know all the details right now.
    Snow!

    I was under the impression the Berkshire East terrain expansion was a few years away at least. I thought the main focus this summer was the downhill mountain bike park?

    Yeah mountain bikes are the main focus this year. Some work may begin on the new terrain. Idea has already been brought to town meeting.
