The wildcard with Peak 7 this year is the pending summer construction projects at the top of Independence Chair where they are going to be building a new restaurant to replace the warming hut.
Not sure of the exact start-date of the project, but they are planning to move-in the construction equipment and building materials before it melts-out.
How sure are you of that? Is that the some permit process as the canopy tour/mtn bike trail project? Because that hasn't been approved by FS yet.
