Why spend money on this?
That pod is barely ever open
How much is this really going to get used?
Why not? Maybe this is part of a plan to be opening it more often. It doesn't have to hardly ever be open and before 15-16, they seemed to open Lookout much more often.
Weather permitting it should be open more. With doubling the capacity of Pump House 1 the lower mountain will get covered a lot faster, so snowmaking will be able to start earlier on Lookout then it has in past seasons.
