Moving Mountains

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
If you could move just one mountain, which one would you move? And why would you move it? Does it have great terrain, but not enough snowfall? Is it too remote or too accessible? How about poor sun or wind exposures? Is the elevation too low or high? Wrong continent? ...

I can't decide which of these to move. They all need more snow and are a little too remote for my vacation convenience.

Sun Valley to the Wasach
Panorama to Colorado
or
Taos to Lake Tahoe

This is a big decision, please advise. My Genie is waiting...

Whistler: straight up 1500 ft, maybe. It might make the top so exposed that it would be closed most of the time. Can your genie adjust when needed?

I would move Snowbasin to Just North of I80 In The Silver Creek area. That would be about 12 miles from Main st Park City, and it would be a 10 min drive from my home. I'm sure the people in Ogden would notice that it was missing. It would be kind of hard to hide . I'm sure they would make us give it back. Might be best to leve it there. i'll just have to suck it up and make the drive. The only other thing I would do is make a lift system from The top of Deer Valley and Park City over to the Cottenwood Canyons. Now that would not be all that hard to do. From the back of Park City Mountain Resort it is less then 3 miles to the top of Brighton.

I would just move Lake Superior to Glenwood Springs.

How about having your genie follow the path of least resistance and move me from NC to SLC. That would be alot easier than moving all of N. Utah, its climate and the Great Salt Lake to the South East.

I think I would just move the Wyoming Border about 50 miles South and West !!! :-)

If your from Utah (or more aptly NOT from Utah), You'll understand.....

All my life I have fantasized why God couldn't have, in the middle of a remote and sparsely populated chunk of West Virginia, generated a one time volcanic eruption sufficient to create a peak about the size of Mt. Hood?!? How many years would it take to cool and stabilize enough for ASC to string up some lifts and build a grand summit hotel?

I'd move Huntah to Joisey.

Move Los Angeles 300 miles closer to Mammoth. Oh wait, Intrawest is already doing that!

I'd like to move Mont Blanc to Aylesbury. But since that is unlikely, I guess I should ask for Blackcomb mountain to be moved there instead.
I'd then like a high speed gondola installed from my back garden up to the top of the glacier.
Oh, and can I have perfect powder every day, and make the mountain private - only for me or people I allow on...

I'd figure you'd want Milton Keyes moved to the US so America can bask in the wonderment that is Milton Keyes. Plus that would make it a better Acadamy candidate

I think they're trying to expand every resort they're associated with closer to LA, both in terms of population and proximity.

Fox,

I like your idea as long as the chefs from the mountain are brought with the mountain. I like the idea of a ski & golf vacation.

I would move Jackson Hole to the Wasatch and twist it sideways along SNowbird so it faces north.

Immagine a 3 resort lift ticket for Jackson, Snowbird and Alta, and Jackson getting the extra snow it needs to actually cover most of its terrain.

Sorry everyone.... I couldn't make up my mind and the genie was offended. So he has refused to any heavy lifting! However, he did say that he would work on the snowfall issues and try to lower the airfares to SLC, Denver, Reno, and Canada for everyone's benefit. Maybe he knows Santa too?

Without a doubt I would move Peak 8 at Breckenridge. Totally wipe it off the map and place it with a nice flat valley and paved, 4-lane road right through the middle of it. Then I could drive from my front door to work without having to go all the way around the entire Ten Mile Range. I figure that would let me sleep in an extra 15 minutes every day and get home 15 minutes earlier. Let's see.. 52*5*30 = 7880 hours and that would be 5 days added to my life each year.

On second thought, Peak 8 has some nice skiing in Imperial Bowl. Peak 6.. yeah, get rid of Peak 6.
