Why, during slow weekdays is it still necessary to have 100 ft plus winding lift gate ropes leading to a chair that consistently have no lines? It's been driving me nuts for a couple years now.

And while I'm at it, the now excessive use of "slow gates" another 50- 100 ft front of the lift lines.. those things piss me off even more, and IMO are just as dangerous with the huge rutting that occurs vs the people that used to speed in all the way to the lift.

Of course, for skiers, these issues probably aren't something you think about as much, but even as an expert rider, it's a PITA to have to deal with all the time, again... when there are so few on the mtn most weekdays.

Ok, I'm done. :)

+1.

They should also remove the signs at the entrance to the lift line lanes that say "stop here & shmooze & block the entrance" :twisted:

I have seen empty rope lanes totally blocked.

They're "terrain features", I thought you people were into that sort of thing, no? :P

hey, I've seen some rope lines and slow gates at June on those desolate weekdays, but they're not 100 ft long, or put a mile above the lift. :P
