    Horseshoe must be replacing their ’89 detach. quad. which stands as the shortest high speed chair I can think of at 1400′

      I’m not sure where it’s going yet. The Doppelmayr high speed quad you mentioned is in fact the second shortest detachable in North America after the Easy Rider Express at Sierra-at-Tahoe. That one’s only 1,165′!

      Wow, I had no idea it was quite that bad in southern Vermont.

    In reference to your Ontario new lifts list of three new ones for LP, I think there is one missing from the list for Dopplemayr. . Please check the facebook page for the Beaver valley Ski Club in Markdale, Ontario. I think they are building a Dopplemayr quad.

    I don’t personally have a facebook account to be able to load and see their facebook page, but I have seen references (in spring 2016) to their plans to build a new lift and I think their facebook page now has updated references to the new lift in progress. Please check and let us know. thanks.

      I don’t see much on Facebook but I do see reference to it on their Webcams page. Sounds like a quad replacing the Hutchinson triple.
