Magic's Black Line Quad construction is currently focused on the upper mountain, as a modified sheave assembly is to be installed. Construction commenced on the refurbished Poma fixed grip quad (from Stratton's Snow Bowl) in 2019, only to be delayed by COVID-19 shutdowns and engineering issues. Apart from the sheave train work, towers are being grouted and chair safety bars are awaiting installation. The lift is expected to be ready for the winter.
