Anyones local hill get new lifts this season?

Anyone extra pumped at the thought of new terrain this season? Sadly no new lifts in my area but I would like to hear of any new terrain that is getting added this season!

PS it should be getting new lifts this season but it wont let me edit the title.

I know Crystal Mountain out here in Washington is installing a new Gondola. It won't actually open up any new terrain, but it will be another way up the hill. Also, they claim they are installing a terrain park this year so that should be cool. Also, White Pass out here is getting 2 new lifts which are opening up close to 800 new acres of terrain. I've never ridden out there before because it's always been small, but this may entice me to go try it out.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Yeah, as posted above Crystal is getting a Gondola, first mountain in Washington, altough I guarantee its going to be a shit show and most people will just ride the 2 lifts up instead of taking the gondola on busy days.

Whitewater is putting in a new chair (finally!) They are putting it on the 'backside' area... where you would normally hike a bit then snowboard down to the road and hitchhike back up.

They're putting a new lift in at A-Basin. It won't service any new terrain, but hopefully it's faster than that old POS they had.

I think Hidden Valley is adding a whole other mountain!!! (read: Small Hill) to the mix, complete with two chairlifts. They were working on it at the end of last season anyways...

(Yes... it's sad that's my hill. But snowboarding is snowboarding.)

Right now the trail map has it down as the "phase 2" expansion or something. It looked like they had a lot of it done before the season ended, but you never know.

and I didn't realize you're in St. Louis. Nice to see someone else from there, haha.

Sounds like I should check it out this year. How long a drive from Banff do you think?
