Yesterday, Gould announced that the mountain was adding a t-bar for Monday Mourning and removing Over Easy access. 

Figure the group here would have some opinions either way and would love to know what everyone is thinking about it.

The 70s just called - it wants its press release back.

So I guess they figured the tunnel was not worth it.  I don't see why that would do away with Over Easy.  It's not like the T bar would be running all the time.  Even at Sugarloaf when the T bar is running they allow access through it.

Over easy really has no impact IMO, but if it helps the Gould Alpine program and makes the Barker /Locke lifts less crowded...great move

#3 T at sl is grandfathered. You will never see anything like that again.

If Over Easy is closed to run the T-BAR, there should be no chairlift access for racers, they should all ride the T-BAR.

what about 1500 Road?!?

(I know - it rarely opens anyway)

So why is this needed?  For wind proofing of race days?  It's not like Locke is usually that busy and I don't see a T-bar haven't enough up capacity to make much difference.

quick laps on training course, I like it.  Waterville has a surface list serving their park, its great park kids lap it all day and free congestions at lifts and allows them to get more laps in.  Win for all if we use the t bar here.  the alpine folks are pretty excited about it for their kids, so full support on my end. 

This new lift will be for quick laps on the training course.

The over easy closure will include a new green trail that doesn't cut across the race arena.

This will give green access back over to Barker, quick turn for racers (this is not a general use lift)

Fine by me.  Cannon installed one over on the new Mittersill race venue in a similar way/purpose.  I wonder if the mountain will extend the race area snowmaking line up to the top of MM now to ensure coverage on the T-Bar line?

Do know what the plan is for the new green trail? I know in the grand scheme of things it may not seem like a big priority, but I am curious.
