Loading would be approximately the middle of the mountain operations building. It would be spaced so as not to interfere with Bravo corral and the ski passage way from Gondolier past Bravo. it would provide great uphill out of the area."

    "The only potential issue is that it mayl be closer than 50 feet from the Claybrook stream bank which is not allowed under the current ANR guidelines. Our position is we are grandfathered due to the existing building and we will be improving the areas because we will have less impermeable surfaces there. In our opinion is really will be environmentally better. This is very close to where the old Gondola bottom terminal once was."
    Thank you sir. I knew I had read about extending the terminal lower somewhere but couldn't find the link this afternoon.

    Hard to believe that it has been gone now for 13 years.

    They are reporting that the North Ridge lift is open again. Anyone actually see it in action?

    That's great news. I love the Bush, but literally every single time I have been there (not that many, like 15 times) NRX wasn't running. As a result I have only been to Ellen once, and even that was because Super Bravo and North Lynx were down at Lincoln. Hoping to get back up later this month and really explore that area.

    I love lower fis but it hasn't been open the last 5 or so times I've been there.
