Teton Lift Home Stretch

The crew from Doppelmayr is flying through work on the Teton lift with 110 days until opening.  Jackson Hole’s fourth high speed quad now has a complete top terminal with the bottom not far behind.  The Uni-G model terminals are mostly gray with white ends.  The 8,500′ haul rope, which was manufactured in Canada, was brought up the mountain earlier this week.  Eighty DT-104 Agamatic grips also arrived in crates last week. The bottom lift shack is the only large component not in already in place besides the haul rope.  At this rate I would not be surprised to see a load test by October 1st.

    DT grips, I am surprised you didn’t get the AGA grip for this lift. I find the AGA grip simpler and the grip is also more similar to the rest of the detachable grips you have already.

      I was surprised too. But as I understand it the DT is standard equipment.

    Yeah, bummer about the DT grip. That forces Doppelmayr to put the grip force sensors on the outgoing side. When there is a grip force fault the chair stops outside the terminal.

    Boxes might say DT but hopefully that’s not what’s inside

      You’re right Mike- Agamatics are in the crates, at least the one that someone opened up already.

    The actuator rail on the terminal looks like the setup for the AGA, the DT rail I though was much shorter but I could be wrong.
