    Let's see if they start editing FB like Q. People seem to finally be pissed.

    The reason why guests ignore it is exactly because it is a double. So that whole side of the mountain is underutilized leaving Super Bravo mobbed.



    PS here is a throwback picture

    Not same load according to this from Win (SkiMRV).

    "The plan is to take down the two MTN ops buildings downhill of the mushroom. There is a water plant that would remain but the rest of the area would maintain a retaining wall near where the existing foundation is and the area filled in with dirt and seeded. 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."

    The picture is the Spring Fling triple.

    Interesting, that differs from the initial permit application.

    Yep, the Spring Fling Borvig.

    The Spring Fling Triple is still going strong at one of the highest ranked amusement parks in the country. Knoebel's in PA.

    What I would do. Leave VH where it is...as is.....put a new lift from the bottom (below VH-Lodge to left) to the top of Spring Fling. Bury Stein's and Spring Fling, ski till June. Beers and BBQ in front of the VH-Lodge......Spring Fling !!!

    Basically put a new Spring Fling chair in, but bring it down to Claybrook.
