A minute from the Alta exit off the I-15!
Very funny! I was expecting a corporate response about trying to be more PC or environmentally friendly.

I'm worried for this thread...for whatever reasons bra/bead trees were AZ's hot topic issue before covid took that over. I'll get the flame war started.... did the unvaccinated bras from out of state cause the covid spike in Vermont? Or was that due to the local population of unvaccinated beads?

I'm surprised that tree was considered "too close" to the lift all of a sudden. Did the tree aggressively move this off-season?

No but keep in mind the Tramway board requires no limb to be capable of falling on the hall rope or interfering with rescue operations. That tree clearly was the latter. They probably got a pass for a number of years but eventually enough was enough. You would be surprised at how fast things grow in on the hill.
