On April 28, 1986, Mt. Snow acquired Carinthia and connected it to the rest of the mountain via four short trails. Overall, the expansion was said to be the largest in the history of Mt. Snow. As a result, Mt. Snow's trail count was boosted 16 and lift count by 3.
One year later, the Carinthia T-Bar was replaced with a new 3,239 foot long by 574 vertical foot Yan double chairlift, helping to bring skiers back to the Main Mountain from the Carinthia base area.
Ten years later, the Carinthia double chairlift (installed only a few years prior to the acquisition) was replaced a new 5,029 foot long by 992 foot vertical Poma high speed detachable quad. Since then, the Carinthia area was been generally geared toward terrain parks and halfpipes, briefly being renamed as "Nitro" and "Planet 9."
