Now that the ski season is winding down, many ski areas are starting to put to together their wishlist of projects. We already know Magic Mountain has entered their project list with snowmaking improvements and lift upgrades.

Love to hear what other areas have planned for the Summer of 2006.

Quite a few mountains took a loss this year, I don't foresee a large scale expansion year in New England.

Stowe will be continuing with there upgrades this year with the addition of a Cabriolet from the base of Spruce Peak to the Mt. Mansfield side of the mountain. I also think that Loon is starting work on the expansion, possibly installing the Lincoln Express this summer or next summer. The only other one I know of with notable mention is the Breckenridge Gondola, since it's going to be an 8 passenger gondola with room for all gear inside the cabins, and the lift will have 2 turns/midstations.

Mount Snow may be starting their 3 million dollar snowmaking project. When this is done, Mount Snow will have 100% snowmaking.

catamount gets a new quad


Which is coming "used" from Bellayre, so I'll assume Belleayre is replacing this lift with a HSQ.

I also saw a "Dodge" report soliciting bids for welding and on hill installation of new snowmaking pipelines at Gore Mtn.

Blue Mountain.
-New HS 6-Pack.
-New Base Lodge with Condos on the upper floors.
-New Intermediate Trail to be completed under the HSQ with snowmaking I would assume as they have 100% snowmaking.

It's not the 100% part that I'll enjoy out of this, it's is what will essentialyy amount to an unlimited supply of water that the pipe down into Somerset reservoir will bring! This way I won't secretly begrudge all the water they use to build the half pipe and terrain parks each year
I'll just half to figure out a way to get over how much compressed air those features use If only MS would get some fan guns for those parks/pipes instead of the air/waters they use now, then it would be the best of both worlds!

Correct - Bellayre is actually reusing parts of the Superchief Quad, so I assume Catamount may be building some new towers for their install.

We may have some stuff going on at B-East beyond a snowmaking expansion, but it's still a bit early.

According to Belleayre's website, construction of the new detachable is starting Monday, April 3rd, so this Sunday will be the last day the Super Chief will run. The mountain still has another 2 weeks of the season left, though.

Smuggs In addition to the six pack and trail improvements on Sterling, which we all know by now, a birdie told me that they should be getting approvals to pull water thru a pipeline from the Lamoille River for increased snowmaking. Nothing listed in the Act250 database on it though.

Did the State and Green Mountain Power approve the withdrawal from Somerset? I'm very surprised Mount Snow has not release a statement regarding it, if it indeed was approved. Killington went crazy with the press releases when they received approval for withdrawal from the local reservior. Mount Snow made a huge deal when they received approval in the early 90's to tap into Haystack's snowmaking ponds when I worked at Mount Snow.

I also wonder if this Phase 1 of multiple phases to improve a long awaited makeover of lifts/existing trails and the possible expansion of terrain along the Deerfield Ridge trail next the Sunbrook area. We will have to keep an eye out for more information.
