News Roundup: Colorado

announcednewlifts3-15
Likely new lifts for 2017 are pacing 39 percent ahead of last year, when 28 new lifts had been announced on this date.  I’ve identified 39 lift projects for 2017 and if last year’s pattern holds, lift manufacturers will build approximately 57 new ropeways in N. America in 2017, the most since 2004.  We’ll know by about July 1.

    Having read the urban gondola article, could a gondola system be realistic for a system running from Denver to Vail/Aspen? The article mentioned a tri-cable gondola reaching speeds up to 60mph; at that speed & following a straight line, it could be possible to be close to the drive time.

    Someone spilled the beans. Yes Taos is getting three new lifts in two seasons. Contract close to signing.
