Eastern Novice Area at Pats Peak
Following the installation of the Valley Double, Pats Peak was still looking to improve novice offerings. In particular, ownership noted the difficulty novices were having riding J-Bars, T-Bars, and double chairlifts.

From a brief period circa the late 1960s and early 1970s, the Patenaudes considered designing and building a single chairlift to run parallel to the lower portion of the Peak Double. The lift would have been about 1,100 feet long and about 130 feet vertical.
Eventually the idea was forgotten and the Hurricane Triple was installed near the former proposed lift line, whilst a smaller surface lift novice slope was constructed higher up.
