    Let me get ahead of rumors. Starting tomorrow we will be running Inverness instead of GMX on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday instead of GMX. It will open at 8am as will Northridge. As you know the lift was struck by lightning this summer and neither Poma nor their subcontractor AB&B has come up with a solution. As you know we have been running on diesel since opening day. However, this is stressing the lift, and we do not like transporting diesel fuel up the mountain every day risking a spill. If we can not get a solution we will plan to install a drive. In the meantime running GMX three days less each day is a good solution. We understand that we are adding some minutes to accessing the upper mountain, but that can be done as you know by riding Inverness and taking Northridge Expressway over to the Northridge chair. Having Northridge open a 8am means you only have to ride Inverness once if you wish. We will clear GMX every day as a back-up. We apologize for this but we think it is the best solution in the near term when we have the lightest visitations at ME.

    Curious how many gallons of diesel per day does it take to run a lift?

    That's cool really a minor inconvenience IMO... nice to have a back up plan that works

    Approximately 100. GMX has two diesel motors. That is why we are able to run it and at about the same speed as on electical. One motor runs the lift and the other is the auxiliary.

    you already posted "only an idiot would ski them". Again, MRG has 100% terrain open next door with zero snowmaking. Maybe you're not a great technical skier in the woods... that's fine
