For Sunday 12/30Regrettably we have closed for the day for safety reasons to continue to work on the Red Chair which did not perform to standard when it was fully loaded today. We will update you on progress and regret the inconvenience for so many.
|Late Sunday Update:|
Here's a status on current lift reparirs and unfortunately the news is not good. We need to replace one of the brake
systems on the Red Chair which requires procuring a part from Utah and, after installation, an updated inspection. We will make every effort to expedite this repair, but we will not be able to open for the next two days.
We are very disappointed that we will not have the lifts operational for you to access terrain for the remainder of this Holiday period. We are working to get the lower beginner tow and tubing park open so stay tuned on that front for late 12/31 or 1/1. We welcome, as always, those willing to skin, hike and snow shoe up Magic. There were quite a few today who got fresh tracks. Again, we look forrward to serving you soon as we work quickly to make repairs to the lifts.
Now down Monday and Tuesday. While I am thankful I was unable to be there for this, I can't begin to express my disappointment for the people that are already up there and unable to ski.
You say "But if this mountain succeeds it is going to be in spite of the way it is run." and that is a pretty scary thought which begs the question why isn't it run differently. Do the shareholders have so little clout despite their investment? It seems like Magic needs an angel donor to give the mountain a million or three to get the basics taken care of so they can focus on the bigger picture.
