From July 13-15, the Canyons Lift Maintenance Department will be conducting some work that will necessitate the lowering of a haul rope onto the Mid Mountain Trail in the Condor area. Trail users coming from the north will be redirected from Apex Ridge up the ski trail about 100 yards (a section will be mowed for easier use) to the work road that will connect them right back to the trail. Those coming from the south will pop out of the woods onto the work road (Easy Street), ride up the road as usual, and instead of dropping back onto the single track, they will continue on the road to Apex Ridge, go down the ski trail and hook back onto the Mid Mountain Trail.
