I am not spoiled and I am not a nerd. Please stop with this. When they build up so much “hype” around something like this new quad and promise it, they should be able to deliver on it. Clearly due to difficult circumstances they couldn’t. Okay. Why wasn’t an apology email sent out to their pass holders or at least a note. At least Win did something like this when he stopped running GMX midweek. Until recently it was all a mystery and the lift was still expected to open for this year. I actually had a part in the planning of this process back in 2018. It’s a long story, but I’ve been following this whole project for awhile now and care about it.
I have no reason to doubt that Magic Mountain would consult a 12-year-old in planning major infrastructure projects, but I sure would like to hear the rest of the story.
Here’s essentially what happened:
So the manager of base facilities also worked as a waitress at a restaurant we used to go to. She heard I was into lifts and mountain ops after talking and told me that they were looking for a lift to replace the Black Chair. I told them that Stratton was looking to remove Snow Bowl and Burke was removing Willoughby. I sent her a long email about the two lifts and she showed it to the GM. He then emailed me back and eventually they worked a deal out with Stratton. I didn’t exactly choose the lift but I had a minor role in the process.
Was there ever an actual "promise" that they would have it installed this year?
There bad business decision was to take the word of a contractor. They were lied to and passed the lie on in their excitement.
As far as the death of the contractor - wasn't that with the green chair?
I believe it was the green chair. Here’s a link to the “promise” they made encouraging people to buy a season pass: https://www.instagram.com/p/BxPxrP3lmba/?igshid=1n8n5vez0hc9x
Along with this there were multiple #quadcoming hashtags as well as #makewayforthequad

So where is the statement that it was going to be 100% guaranteed that the Quad was going to be operational this season?
LOL!!The lack of communication from Magic Management has been beyond frustrating! Total black hole! WFT. I buy a season pass and I never hear from them again? I think I'm going to ski Mt Snow - they really nailed it this year when it comes to communicating with the skiing public!;-):grin:
Kudos to Geoff and how he effectively communicates with his guests (and social media)\
Anyway I'd love if my question about Magician gets answered instead of buried in this. How's the base holding up in the woods compared to last Sunday? Looks like everything's still open.
I'm pumped for my next ski day @ Magic on sunday!
