    no I mean between a fixed grip and detach quad I had zero concern either way aside from banter's sake. I might be a minority on this forum but I actually have less expertise when it comes to lifts than the engineers at Poma, Dopplemayr, etc

    I will absolutely be at Saddleback for re-opening year

    Happy to hear they went HSQ. I would've been happy with anything that got them back open, but I really feel a HSQ is needed if they want to syphon off skier visits from their primary competition in Sunday River and Sugarloaf.

    This maybe an unpopular opinion, but I also feel they should push hard to get on the Icon Pass. At least for the first few years they need to drive traffic there by any means possible and get word of mouth out.

    Agree. I hope they do that also. For a ski area in Saddleback’s position, that has a ton of marketing value.

    I am so pumped to ski Saddleback with a HSQ instead of the Rangely double! I have said many times in the Saddleback threads that the replacement of the Rangely double was absolutely essential to bringing back Saddleback. But also that I thought I'd never see it happen. Glad to be wrong on that one. The amount of skiing you'll be able to get in with 2 HSQs there will be amazing. Such a great mountain.

    100% agree that getting on Ikon or the independent pass is necessary to bring back the skiers.

    Anybody know what happened to Salsgang? He should be dancing in the snow right about now.

    While IKon is a bad word around these parts, that would be a good angle for them. SB also fits their MO of "unique" resorts.

    Pretty sure only one HSQ. 2 quads, though.

    What's wrong with my statement? The Rangeley double was painfully slow and on weekends that would cause a long liftline. Not unusual for it to be a half hour or more to go from getting in line to getting to the top. With an HSQ there will be much smaller lines and a faster ride. Combined with the Kennebago quad - that's great capacity and speed to cover a large moutain. What's to question there?
