The new black chair looks great. They did crush a water pipe when putting up the towers, so that needs to be replaced before they can blow snow. Still looking/hoping for a Thanksgiving weekend opening.
There's also a new ski/consignment shop down at the entrance, nice to see a ski-centric business in the neighborhood.
Powder Mountain has not only a cap on day tickets, they also limit the number of season passes. Empty slopes and no lift line is one reason to go there over the other options around SLC.
Deer Valley raised their cap several years ago, well before the sale to Alterra. Still have one but only reach it during holiday periods. Ikon passholders have to reserve a day ticket in advance to be sure.
Alta had cap at some point, but it's been quite a while.
If they do have a cap, they should raise it in light of the quad. This ownership group is improving Magic and if they are able to sell more tickets, there is a better chance they remain open. I doubt anybody would notice more people unless there was a perfect storm of a Thursday 20" blizzard that ends Friday morning on a 3 day weekend.
