Hey powdr don't ya have anything better to do on a great sunny afternoon?? hehe.Me? Spent part of the afternoon touring around Reno and the car show that statrted today
Saw you post about this on another site?
I have always been for this dola idea? But there is the small problem of which resort will be in the majority control.
DV and PCMR Lift Ops and Lift Maint. Depts, are ran totaly differant from one another.
It will be a logisitc probelm from hell as i see it. You'll have PCMR lift ops on Main street, telling passengers, oh ya you can snowboard at DV. Then once they get to where the dola lands at DV, they are going to be in for sshock, when DV employees tell them , sorry we do not allow snowboarding, then those people will have to reload back to PCMR. My soureces at DV still continue to tell me, still no plans to allow smow borders.
Then there is the minor problem of DV and PCMR working out how they will split the lift ticket sales. As far as i know they are still both talking about how to do this.
Also since DV limits the number of ticket sales each day, do tot he fact they do not want over crowding in the 3 day lodges( the mtn can handle it with no problem). they don't want to ruin the guests, expreance. So yes there a a few logistic problems.
If you or anyone has an idea, feel free to drop a note to the GM at Deer Valley.
I for one would like to see a gondola run fromn the Canyons to Deer Valley with stops at PCMR. This would help gt rid of cars in town.
