Description

Originally cut for the Old Silver Queen Gondola, Old Lift Line is a low angle bump run that runs in between Crystal and International. To access Upper Old Lift Line, take Monument or Ruby Road to the top of International and Crystal. The bumped run that runs left of the Crystal bumps is the start of Old Lift Line, which continues down through trees until it opens up with no trees separating it and International. It is a leg burner that is often forgot about compared to Twister and International. It continues down the mountain, where it is interrupted by the International groomer for a few hundred yards.
