Man, I would have loved to sit in on that meeting.

Ogden City is ripe for discovery. The downtown is great and only needs to be dusted off, the city itself is a nice size, not too big and easy to get around. That area (Odgen City, Ogden Valley, Morgan Valley) is very appealing.

They have a great little ballpark too.

Typed East when I should have typed West. The People in Morgan are getting pretty giddy over all the rumors about what old Dick Bass and Earl might be doing in the near future.

Earl has also placed a priority on a lift to the top of no-name, the time line I heard was within 5 years. Hells canyon will be open terrain next season.

And talking to one of the foreman who came to the golf course to renew his pass the other day-getting ready to our foundations.

A lot of work going on at the base of Union Creek when I drove over to Vail last week. I would suspect you will see the gondola out of Union Creek to the new Learning Center at the top of Lumberjack before any other new lifts. Last summer they cleared out all the terrain at the top of Lumberjack and the Forest Service approved this change a few years ago.

Breck also has approval to open the "Snow White" area for next season which is another 150 acres of 30-45 degree slopes west of Lake Chutes.

After that they plan on opening the entire Peak 9 cirque to the summit for hiking above the Windows which is another 500 acres or so. Hopefully, this will happen next season as well.

Vail Resorts catches a lot of heat, but once they make a decision, they move on it pretty quickly.

My information is that there will be no new lifts at Copper this year. Intrawest told the lift maintenance folk that they did not make enough money to invest in lift expansions. They are currently doing quite a bit of lift maintenance, though, including replacing all of the clutches on the Eagle.

Need a summer Job? The Park Record has a listing for jobs installing two new lifts in the Park City area.

They should keep the Rope Toe, but the Pioneer should be chucked for good.

BTW, I am still waiting for the lift from Kt22 to Alpine Meadows to finish. Getting tired of looking at it each time on top of KT22. I think it will never happen.

They have some maps of the development plans on their website, as part of their attempt to end the lawsuit from the "Ski Trails" condo owners over the new Village Express (which at least this season seemed unpopular). New lift looks to be a gondola, plus a new chair to replaced the rope tow.

What exactly is the plan with that? It's been like that a good long while now. Which resort is building it? And will there be a combined pass or something? There's a lot of interesting terrain between Squaw and Alpine that could use developing.

Here is an old thread talking about it.

I'm hearing that Big Mountain lift is not happening, too much money quoted for a 200 foot lift. They're looking for a used lift.

You lost me here...to the best of my knowledge this area has been open for years....there are access gates all over the place and I have never seen anything saying any of that area is closed. I hiked it 25 or so years ago and it is quite a haul to get up to the top of Peak 9. It fun skiing there but not anything to really write home about. Way cool view looking DOWN at Copper though.

It's currently backcountry access through the gates. The plan is to turn it into controlled hikable terrain next season to replace the terrain lost by the Imperial lift.

Just so we have the complete history.

Isn't Grand Targhee putting in another lift on Peaked Mountain this year, this time through the remaining cat skiing terrain?

Powdr ... thanks

Hey thanks for the info. I'm especially excited about the lift at PowMow ... that's my only regret about the place ... that one particular lift.
