Why don't they just remove some of the Chairs if they don't want to run the lifts at full capacity. That would make more sense when a lot of trails are closed. I wish Sugarbush would do that early season.
Huh? Remove chairs? Taking a chair on and off isn't exactly a 2 minute job... Plus on a detachable (not sure about fixed grip lifts) there are sensors for chair spacing from what I recall. If you alter the number of chairs, that impacts the spacing and now you need to reprogram the chair spacing algorithm... I somehow doubt that is simple to do either.
