The return station of a detachable quad burned last night at Ski Bromont in Quebec.  The 2003 Doppelmayr CTEC lift is called Versant du Lac or Lift 5.  More pictures of it can be found here.  This is the third such terminal fire in Eastern Canada in as many years.  The drive terminals of high speed quads at Mont Tremblant and Marble Mountain burned in 2014 and were subsequently repaired.  The good news for Bromont is the Uni-G terminal model is still in production so it shouldn’t be too hard to get a new one this spring.  Doppelmayr’s St. Jerome factory is less than two hours away.

    There was another fire in the East at Tremblant, trying to remember the date? the top operator cabin whiuch had the drive electrical components caught fire The Doppelmayr Uni G was the first lift that Interwest instaled the fall of 1991, ordered right after they purcahed Tremblant. the Doppel Dogs did an amazing job and had the lift up and running by Xmas The fire was in early Nov when the power was turned on for the snow making season Those pessty squirels???
    Keep up all the Amazing work all you Doppel Dogs Cheers Senior Doppel Dog 1987-2002
