Never have I seen a mtn improvement ruin how the mtn skis so bad as this new lift that replaced the powderhorn chair. Yes the powderhorn lift was slow and cold, but that was the point, the ridge didn't get skiied out so fast. Now after a good dump, the entire face is gone in about 20 minutes. I have skiied Solitude many times for a lot of years and have always had a great day, but this was my last sorry to say.
