Apparently there is an engineering problem with the tower placements for the lift. Somehow it got past the Poma and Vermont inspectors but when they ran it for the first day they noticed the problem. They're not estimating a timeline on the fix, but if it really is a misplaced tower I doubt it'll open for the season.
That's the bad news. The good news is that for those of us who don't mind a mile hike in ski boots, they're allowing people to hike the long trail from the top of the Heaven's Gate lift over to the top of Castlerock. For those who put up with the hike, the conditions should be great all season with little traffic.
I know I'll enjoy my turns over there. [img]smile.gif[/img]
