    45 minutes, considering they only had 5 towers to set. Don’t know what’s up with the camera, but if you flip it 180, it looks like the haul rope is on. https://www.skihood.com/cams/vista

    Sounds like the Golden Hornets Poma is being restored at Aspen Highlands, now all we need is for the Grand Prix poma to be restored also. I have missed that lift since the day it was removed.
