Eventually becoming Timber Ridge, the ski area looked expand and become a private family country club. For the 1972-73 season, a new 3,891 foot Hall double chairlift was installed to near the top of the ski area, increasingly the vertical drop from 320 feet to about 800 feet. About half a dozen new trails of all abilities were added in conjunction with the lift.
The double chairlift would remain in operation for the balance of Timber Ridge's independent operation, as well as when it was part of Magic Mountain. Upon Magic's closing, the chairlift was removed and reinstalled at Smuggler's Notch.
In January 2014, upper mountain was featured on the National Geographic show Building Wild's episode "Top of the World," in which a cabin was constructed on the top footing of the former chairlift.
