SNOWBASIN, Utah (AP) -- The U.S Forest Service is considering a proposal for a new ski lift at Snowbasin.

The proposed detachable high-speed quad would start slightly lower and end lower on the mountain to the north of the Strawberry Express gondola.

The vertical rise of the lift would be 1,970 feet from top to bottom, with a lift line slope length of 8,500 feet.

Resort officials hope the new lift will lessen congestion on the mountain. The lift may be in place by the 2009-10 ski season.

The Forest Service is taking public comment on the proposal.
