Arapahoe Basin Expansion plans...

This is the first time I have seen a map of their expansion plans. Interesting stuff.

The Beavers lift should unquestionably give A-basin the best terrain on I-70 East of Aspen. Lots of really steep stuff. Avalanche control could be an issue, but the "hike back" terrain is amazing. 

 

I'm sad to see Norway is getting removed. Lots of fond memories of riding that clunker back in the day.

 

Is Pali getting a high speed lift?

Interesting.  Beaver area has much better exposure than Zuma which gets too much direct sun and has trouble holding snow.  Don't see how they will have enough uphill capacity on a busy day with the removal of Norway and just the Lenawee triple .

That expansion looks awesome! I hope they can pull it off.
