Not sure if this fits under Winter or Summer Activates: https://snowbrains.com/alterra-capital- ... tinations/

"Canyon Lodge & Summer Activation at Mammoth Mountain, California: Canyon Lodge sees 60% of Mammoth Mountain’s visitors and will receive an innovative redesign over the next two years, positioning it to become the Day Lodge of the future. An enhanced guest arrival will include new retail space, user-friendly access to rentals and ticket windows, innovative food and beverage services, and a redevelopment of the popular snow beach area.

A new summer adventure sport offering will be available for fall 2018 at Main Lodge at Mammoth Mountain, complete with adrenaline-pumping thrill experiences, including the longest top to bottom zipline tour in North America, in the combination of the two spans, plus a via ferrata rock climbing experience suspended on the mountain face, and junior ropes courses
."

Bad news is I heard they are getting rid of the Canyon season lockers :cry:

Hearing lots of rumors. One is Canyon will be extended towards chair 17. The other is they are installing escalators in the building. I wish they would double deck the parking lot by digging down to create a second level.

Sorry but anything other than demolishing Hut 2 is unacceptable.

All the offerings they're describing should be placed at the top of Chair 15. Just extend the Village Gondola to there and build a lodge that looks fit for a king (or ShiftyRider).

If you're silly enough to park anywhere near the Hut without a lift ticket, ya gotta ride the gondola down to the Village. Which will be great because I'm speeding that thing way up.

Chair 15 will become "No Lift Ticket Required". Every other lift you gotta pay, keeps the riff-raff all in one place...

I've heard the rumors of the Canyon enhancements and the zip line, but I would've expected Eagle Lodge improvements and hotel construction to go at or before it.

Ugh, I hope Eagle didn't get left out again.

Sorry, the tattered white tents will be good enough for the riff-raff.

About having to ride down first if you park near where the Hut has been reduced to a pile of rubble:

There will NOT be any signs that say "Down" and "Up" nor "To Village" and "To EagleRider Luxury Lodge". The signs will simply say "No lift ticket? Get in this line". Let them not know they gotta ride down first, until they finally get to the front of the line.

We will have similar signs down at the Village. Those who get in the no ticket line will find themselves boarding a bus to June (which will possibly be converted to a tastefully-decorated indian casino).

Thank you Shifty it is and always will be referred to as the Hut until it meets its demise.

Eagle is fine just the way it is.

What do you mean? There's a perfectly good ski-back trail to take you to the village ;)

Shifty,

Canyon Lodge is the finest example of Soviet block architecture in the Eastern Sierra! It'll be a shame to lose all that unique character.

:P

Sierra Wave News story on this subject. Pretty much the same as in the first post and then some about improvements at their other resorts.

Alterra announces Canyon Lodge redesign, new zipline at Main Lodge
