Rusty mentioned building a new zip line. Where do I sign up?

He heralded plans to build “the
world’s tallest zipline” from the top of
the mountain to the top of Chair 1, then
from Chair 1 to the bottom gondola. “It
will be a butt-tightening ride that peo-
ple will never forget. It will cost about
$3 million and put us on the summer
map forever in people’s minds.”

I would think that there are more interesting routes the line could take - something through the treeline. Mid to Mill, top of 25 to top of Eagle, top of 9 down to bottom of Eagle - something like that. Dare I say it, maybe even June would be a better place for this?

I'm guessing it needs to end at Main since that's where most of the action is in the summer, and it returns you to where you started (assuming you took the gondi up).

Run it from the top Gondi station down through Hole In The Wall ending at the Tamarack Lodge bar and you've got my attention.

But first MMSA is going to enhance the Main Lodge sundeck.
