Forging Ahead with New Trails
We’re making great progress with the new high-speed quad and additional trails on the backside of the mountain! Work on the new trails off upper Ray’s Ridge is expected to be complete by the end of the week.
As you know, we’re adding 2 new trails off of Ray’s Ridge and expanding the old mid-way loading area to create an intermediate trail to the bottom of the Legends Lift. Some have asked the names of these new trails. The “Legends” Lift and the trails in this area of the mountain are named for the founders, employees, shareholders and notable locals, including Ray’s Ridge (Ray Duncan), Paul’s Park (Paul Folwell), Chet’s (Chet Anderson), Elliott’s (Mike Elliott) and more. Every trail name in the Legends Lift area has a tie to the resort associated with it, and these new trail names will be similar. We haven’t finalized any names yet, but we will soon, and we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we do.
As for Lift 8…. More equipment for the new high-speed quad has arrived at the resort. Crews are done forming the tower foundations, next up is flying in towers! Check back for more updates!
