Is the gondi stage 1 or stage 2? Will they have the full 6000' this year?

Went to the Vancouver Ski Show on the weekend, and these guys obviously had the big marketing budget. Awesome displays and great giveaways (got a nice t-shirt from them).
Stage one of the gondi happens this year in addition to the high speed quad, giving 4700 vert. Next year includes stage 2 of the gondola (servicing the lower 1000 ft.) and another quad reaching about 300 vert higher, giving a total of 6,000 vertical feet of fall line (no flats or traverses to deal with).

Here's hoping they come to Calgary this weekend. I think I'd better book early for an exploratory trip in January.

Thanks for the update.

Things are looking good! Using Golden as base camp you'll be able to spend a couple of days at LL, KH, and Revelstoke! That's a great formula for one great week of skiing. The only thing better would be if KH put in another lift up Terminator ridge!

I skied there 15 years ago with Cat Powder Skiing. What a great mountain. Need to make plans to go back.
