I've been to Snowbasin several times this year and several times have run into some pretty rough conditions at the top of Strawberry Gondola. Either super wind-blown sheets of ice or complete whiteouts that have you wondering if you're in the middle of a run or about to drop off a cliff.
I was thinking it would make sense to have a lift that served about 3/4's of the way up the Strawberry side and did some googling, and sure enough found an old thread here on Epic where they were planning to do just that, alongside the re-alignment of Little Cat lift. It looks like this was scheduled for Summer of 2009 and, while the Little Cat re-alignment happened, obviously there's still no lift on the Strawberry side besides the Gondola all the way to the top.
Does anyone know what happened with this, or if there are still any plans to do it?
