12 Minutes in Heaven

Filed Under (Mountain Snapshots) by admin on 25-09-2011

It has come to our attention that some people think the Red Chair is slow and old fashioned.  Thank You!  Magic skiers look forward to the twelve minutes up for many reasons.  Even with a ten-minute lift line, the mountain takes hours to track out on a powder day.  I personally prefer waiting 12 minutes for the privilege of fresh tracks at 3:00 pm.

While many of our memories are made in that powder, the ride up can be just as fun.  You meet people on the way down, but  you get to know them on the way up.  A few years ago I ended up on the chair with some guy who was even more obsessed with Magic than me.  This will be the 5th season we are sharing a ski house.  High-speed quads are very efficient, just not when it comes to forging friendships.

The Red Chair delivers over 1600 vertical in one full shot.  Magic has no trail pods so everything starts and finishes at the red.  Trail pods in the east tend to be 800-1000 vertical offering a quick up and down.  Magic was designed to maximize its vertical delivering up to 1.6 miles of down time. If you knock out Magic top to bottom without stopping, you will want the twelve-minute ride, I promise.

I hope to spend hours on the Red Chair and with the Black Chair running backup and Holidays this season, lines should be even shorter.  Now come make those lines happen, grab some powder and make a friend.
