    Absolutely agree. Very few people today and the skiing in the afternoon was not bad at all once visibility improved.

    The plan is to make the Black Chair the main workhorse next season, correct? And Red will only be run as a backup?

    I skied Magic today, it was very quiet. I thought more folks would be skiing. The weather eventually cooperated and Tali was in great shape! Depending on the level of melting this week, next wek may proove to be challenging, a few trails will not make it another week. There was plenty of good skiing today once you could see a line to ski. Today was my last visit for the season for me. I will be back! I waved a goodbye to the Black Chair even though she didnt turn this year the future is looking bright for her replacement. I am looking forward to watching the growth in the off season.
    Ski it like you stole it!

    The NEW Magic Mountain

    Closed out my magic season last weekend with my third day there this year. Had a blast really getting to explore the place, including skiing a lot of terrain I dont normally get to see or ski. As a passholder across the valley, I am super stoked at the huge investments in time, capital, and passion from the new ownership and magic faithful. Its a gem and is absolutely needed for southern vt.

    I thought the plan was to replace the Black with the Quad they purchased from Stratton?

    You can primarily thank the slow, arduous VT Act 250 permitting process for that quad spending this season out in the parking lot at Magic rather than hauling people up the hill....

    Just the opposite from what I understand. Red will remain the workhorse and the quad will be used as the backup.

    Why is that? Is it because you can run a double slightly faster than a quad?

    Quoting from the press release at https://unofficialnetworks.com/2018/...agic-mountain/

    “Magic will operate the new quad as the primary summit lift every weekend and holiday period, with the famed Red Chair continuing as an additional lift on busy weekends plus pulling main duty on lighter traffic weekdays.”

    Kind of a bummer from a nostalgia perspective.

    Once the new Quad goes in were going to tear the Red Chair down. Dont need that lift. And the towers get in the way of skiers on Red Line
