New Chairlift Construction

new_lift.jpg

Construction on the new chairlift at Red Mountain seems to be progressing well, hopefully well in time for the beginning of the ski season. The as yet un-named (though the Chair to Nowhere was gaining currency last winter) chairlift will replace the now partially disassembled  Silverlode triple chair, with what I’m told is a longer, slower and lower capacity fixed grip quad chair, that’ll drop me considerbly further from my destination (the Motherlode chair). The only upside I can see is that I’ll now be able to pass people (especially snowboarders) on the longer ski between lifts  on powder mornings. I can’t speak to whether it’ll actually provide for a better beginner ski experience, and I don’t know if I’ll live to see connectivity to a lift up Grey, but I’m certain that the owners are banking on opening up a whole lot more ski-in ski-out real-estate, to recoup their investment.
