Get ready to ride an new Doppelmayr this coming winter
A little odd to announce this in June. Still awesome! I need to get to Ragged one day. I've only heard good things about the glades in the Ravine and management seems to be doing an awesome job.
I don't think that there's anything odd about wanting to announce, and generate some buzz about a major capital expenditure likely in the 4 million or so range, that was probably in the works for a while, but just awaiting final securing of the funds to go forward with it (always a challenge in the ski industry these days). I'm sure they would of loved to announce this the last few weeks of their season, but couldn't be sure at the time that they'd be able to secure the capital needed to make it happen for the '14-'15 season
I went to Ragged once in 1990 or so. It was super-cold, and the skiing was pretty weak, and I left after a few runs... I've never had any desire to return, but now that I have young kids, I'm sure it will happen at some point. Is Spear any better (more challenging) than the main mountain?
