A plan snoloco would love.

That plan still has Lift 14 on it.

How about, staff the mountain midweek with enough employees so that all of this hardware is put to use?

Yes, great point Benny! There is a huuuuge lack of available labor here in our area, and Gore/ORDA has blinders on if they think that the wages that they pay will bring workers here, especially with the cold hard fact that there is very little available rental housing for workers to live local.
It's only going to get worse...

noticed the location of "cave glades" isn't right on the map. I think that's actually Birch Bark....

On that note, last night on the way home I saw an ad in the Metro North car for the ski hill at West Point -- open to the public during the week.  

So the U.S. Army is now officially marketing its only ski property better to NY metro residents than is Gore Mountain.

That would be a shame.  Me and the girls love the double chair up the narrow path through the trees.  I know that lift is old, but replacing it with a new double might keep some of the charm.  There's almost never a line there anyway so why would you need a quad?

Nobody makes doubles anymore. You probably can find used triples and quads cheaper than building a custom double. The Mittersill double installed in 2010 cost almost $3 million. If they replace the Hudson triple with a HSQ, the Hudson Triple would slot right into the High Peaks line.
