Since we have a thread about trails that are never open I thought I'd start this one.

Quickly off the top of my head I'll start with South American at Stratton & Black at Magic.

I'm sure there are others out esteemed members can come up with.

Good idea for a thread! But I can't think of anything... cannon is the only place we've been to with enough regularity to be able to know...

Having said that, the bmore double has never been open the half dozen plus times we've been to Bretton woods.

I don't think we've ever seen the valley lift open at crotched either.

Never? Can't think of any. Rarely? I never see the Oz quad at Sunday River run, though I think it ran 4 days last season. I've also never seen the Duckling double at Sunapee run, but haven't been there in many years.

Devil's Fiddle...oh, wait. ;)

Lift needs to go. Such an eyesore.
I've heard, not sure, the reason they've left both Devils Fiddle & South Ridge towers in place is because if they ever wanted to install a new lift they won't have to go through the permitting process again since the lift towers are already there.

Does the Birdland chair at Mad River run anymore? Last I saw the chair year before last the entrance ramp at the bottom was not operational & in need of repair.

I know many are not familiar but I don't think I've ever seen the t-bar on the backside of Mt. Sainte Anne open. There's a small but separate trail pod back there.

This is the backside, T-bar trail pod is on your right.

Knomes Knoll Triple at Pico. Less certain about these, but Top Notch Double and Kachina Triple at Attitash.

Any Blandford skiers here? I'd be curious to hear how often the chair on skiers' far left operates. Skied there for the first time a couple years ago and was surprised that such a small area has three chairlifts.

Second both and add West Double - East Runs all the time. Seems redundant to have two doubles start and end at the same place, minus the midstation drop off

Every time there is a race re: Blandford.
