Stowe - changes at Spruce?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey, I hear that the Alpine Slide has been shut down and they are taking out the Alpine and Easy Street chairs. I know they are working on the town square/skating rink, but does anyone know what the plan is for the mountain?

Alpine and Easy are being replaced by a carpet load fixed-grip HSQ that terminates where Alpine does now. There will be some minor regrades up there o make the first pitch easier. There will also be upgrades to the snowmaking in that area which may bring NASTAR back to NASTAR hill and may bring in a seeded bump run or something like that as well.

Interesting. Is the Alpine Slide gone for good? It seemed to be a little rough lately but I will be sorry to see it go. It seemed to do good business in the summer.

Gone. It would have cost $500,000 to fix it up. It will likely be replaced with a mountain coaster.
