Will be good to have it located at a different "base" area - hopefully will spread out skiers a bit during the 9am rush, although hotel guests may find the lifts from the Spanish Peaks base not to get them where they want to go fast enough.I'm not sure if anyone has posted this yet, but plans for a new Montage resort broke ground with a target opening of 2021.
In the logging industry the "Sand Line" that you are talking about is called Straw Line and is 5/16" thick and flexible, so compared to the Grapple Yarder's Haulback Line and Main Line, it is like straw in size and strength and weight.On the website it refers to a "sand line", which I assume is used to then pull the haul rope/cable - is that right? Basically put a lighter rope on first and use that to keep the haul rope out of the snow and "sand"?
One would hope. Might be tough to fill in the part under the lift, depending on how quickly the chairs get up. .Hard to tell from the cams. I wonder if they can fill in the (skier's) right side and plant some trees or something (a snow fence this year).I agree this looks like a hole. Maybe more grading to come. Ramcharger 8 cable installation reported to be ahead of schedule.
Playing golf at home now, looking forward to skiing next month.
Even lower in elevation, Little Calf where it crosses below Grizzly. The groomers seemed to be packing the low angle trails including the ones that won't open until Ram Charger is turning, (unless Low Dog to Thunder Wolf becomes and early season option.)
