Hey BG - Thanks for your input. Sooner or later I knew we would interest an honest-to-goodness local into the discussion.
I haven't skied Song, Lab or Tog in at least a decade, so prompted by your post, I got out "The White Book" and looked them up. Unfortunately my copy is from 2000, so the info may be a bit out of date. Have there been any major expansions (ie, like new lifts) since then?
Here's the main stats that I found. I'm not going to try to include the detailed data on uphill capacity, longest trail, misc surface lifts, % snowmaking coverage, etc. because each one of these variables isn't available for all 5 resorts in my edition, but the uphill lift capacity gives a pretty good idea of size:
Toggenberg - 600' vert, 1 double, 1 triple ( = 5 simultaneous uphill seats)
Song - 700', 1 double (=2)
Labrador - 700', 2 doubles, 1 triple (=7)
Greek Peak - 900' (760' usable) - 5 doubles, 1 triple (=13)
Bristol - 1200', 2 doubles, 1 triple, 1 high speed quad (=11, but effectively closer to 13 because of the quad's speed).
Anyway, bjohansson, hope all this intel you are getting on your new home base helps.
Tom / PM
