    Connector lift? Why not build it all out...as planned in the 80s...

    A few are already hanging near my condo complex. I don't need them moving in.

    Witches would be the main and really only terrain over there that is worthwhile and can be interesting. Its a mini version of North Face if you will. The lower mountain area is a very well designed learning area that would take some load of Long John maybe?

    That's not something we're looking to do. If you remember, we were the ones who sold it last.

By the mid-1970s, he planned to have 21 double chairlifts, 6 gondolas, 4 tramways, and 6 trail complexes, with the capacity to handle 40,000 skiers per day. The overall estimated price tag for the development was $75-$85 million. As part of the conversation, he suggested using an atomic bomb to lower the base elevation of part of the mountain, in order to increase the vertical drop."

    So... breaking ground for the 2018 season?

    Maybe Peak resorts can buy a bomb on the cheap from N Korea?

    The Atomic bomb part of the idea won't work. The rest of it I can buy into though. Let's get digging! Blasting is probably OK, but radiation isn't good for anyone.
