    Already meantioned. My apologies. Any trail maps released? In my mind I’m trying to place the lift bottom and top

    Here's a map to give you an idea

    Nice. Love it. As a point of reference is that Dropoff in the top left corner?

    Where the top terminal gets off on Belt Parkway will be a Cluster£"€#. That area is going to take on a slow sign or two in the trail.

    No dount. Some idiot will go to the top of Belt 1st time on skis and take out 20 people unloading the lift.

    Sure looks like it. It appears the top terminal is at the intersection of White Cloud, Belt Parkway and Way Out? IDK hard to read that map. .... Later edit: yep looks like about 1000 vert to that point from GE and per Hunter Press release.

    Pretty much sums up skiing at Hunter on a weekend...

    That was me, not Ski_It. Where the cursor goes, no one can control....or go back if you put it in the wrong place. I will refrain from political humor with that last one...

    On the map it looks like a flat trail from the base of West to the bottom of the new lift. So that could be used when the new lift is running, and the West expert
    trails could still be opened without using the Zephyr Quad. If this happens, skiing Clair's Way on slow days will involve skiing the new runout. A ride on the new chair. A run down lower Belt Parkway. Then a ride back up the six pack on the main face if you want to do
    Clairs twice in a row.

    Idk, it's just hard to imagine 1000' of vert from that intersection which seems like at least 1/3 if not 1/2 way down the mountain.

    I thought the same and I had to check it on GE. It looks possible although I'm not sure if I located the either terminal properly.

    The intersection is just shy of 31% down from the summit.

    For the new six pack, I get 1000 vertical feet. Base looks to be about 1720' and the summit at the intersection is about 2720'.  For reference, the summit of the Kaatskill Flyer is around 3170' and the base is around 1700'

    I think this is a great move. That mountain is so bizarre in its layout, due to the topography, and this provides 3 realtively straightforward intermediate runs, away from the main lodge mayhem.

    The maps show pretty tight lines for intermediate runs.

    They look as wide as Belt Parkway and Way Out.

    Does look steep for blues but some other blues there are like blacks at other smaller areas.

    These "blue" trails are going to be fun with typical east coast hard pack
