You get to see and hear some great things from the chairlift. I guess part of the entertainment of the chair ride is watching others. This is why our terrain park is strategically placed below the main lift. It's purely for entertainment purposes.
The other day some of us were riding up the quad and saw a mono-skier coming down Powderkeg. A kid about 15 years old (too young to remember mono-skis) said, "Whoa what is that?" To which the mono-skier replied, "Hard." What a great answer.
