No worries. I just like to have some options for when there has been a melt/freeze, which is more often than not in modern times.

I have skied Snowbird when all of the frontside was coral reef, all day, in both January & June. I will look forward to skiing some sweet March corn in the new terrain.

Have fun! smile.gif

From my experience the topo maps showing potential resort expansions found on skimap.org do not necessarily come to fruition as designed, but usually are accurate with the latest available from the time they were created.

 

Are we sure that this is the latest?

 

http://www.sltrib.com/news/3765664-155/snowbird-gets-ok-for-mary-ellen suggests a gondola (not tram) from Hidden Peak to Mary Ellen Gultch, not the West Twin Peak. Then again, maybe by going to MEG they mean West Twin Peak?
