And i guess the whole 2 lift idea was a pipe dream?

No, I wouldn't go that far. They did lots of work on Black this summer (I personally witnessed some of it) so not a pipe dream. Whether issues with Red have diverted resources from Black I cannot say, but I could imagine such a scenario. IMHO they don't need Black until a holiday period where they have significant terrain open, which short of a rather large dump next week will be Presidents. That said, always believed in having a back up.....
Good point. I may have interpreted the post incorrectly. I assumed that it meant that the chair was being inspected, but it probably means that the counterweight is being attended to tomorrow. If that is indeed the case, that would leave precious little time for a lift inspection.
If that is indeed the case, then they should say so as soon as possible. Keeping people on the hook until the last minute won't make things better. The good news is that this weekend may not be a good weekend for skiing anyway. But we're getting awfully far into the year to have a ski area remain closed.That said, no way they get a skiable path from the summit by the weekend. They should just come out and say it now.
Can't imagine any of the emergency systems were inspected/tested if the counterweight wasn't ready.
