Good evening all- been lurking here for a while. 1st - you guys do a great job keeping the forum "entertaining" and always have solid trip reports for Blue Mtn. Tomorrow will be trip 4 for me this season to Blue - last year went mostly to Elk and (1) sorry trip to Camelback. I've wanted to join for a while and saw something today on another forum that gave me a kick. The poster said freinds at Blue told him plans are permitted and approved for project this summer to add new lift at Blue. Maybe I missed it in another topic on this forum - if so sorry for the repost? I like the idea of the lift servicing the Western top as its a PITA to get accross when crowded and you want to change it up...dont like they are taking both chairs away mid mntn as that is fun to loop sometimes espically when crowds suck in the valley. Thoughts?
The lift will have it's bottom terminal at the Valley Lodge. It will extend in a western direction to the very top of the mountain to where both Main St. and Burma twin double chairs end. , The existing Burma and Main st chairs will be removed, a good thing given their age.. Also removed is the short Valley lift starting just below the Mountain Lodge and going to the western summit.
