Wondering why resorts plow the snow from around the bottom lift terminals.  Look at the SS cam pictures to see what I am talking about.

I’d bet it’s to speed up the melting process.  That way, they can get to the lifts faster for maint and prep for summer mtn biking.  If you look at the Shavers / Skidder cam you’ll see they try to get down to that paved area as well.

Yeah, I recall mention SS has plans of remaking the Skidder area to make it more useful & efficient year-around.

The first time I went to Mammoth, 1995 I believe, a trench had to be dug under the lift to keep the chairs from bottoming out.  Not going to happen this year.
