    Oh no! I’m sad about Wildcat being replaced. Now there will be only one Yan center-pole double at Alta. Why does Sunnyside need to be replaced? It is a new Garaventa-CTEC detachable triple that does not have any problems that I am aware of.

      The proposed new Sunnyside is a chondola for better foot passenger service to Alf’s. Albion would be removed so capacity would be increased as well.

        Are those changes at Alta happening this summer?

      2,000 – 2,500 to get them shipped to Denver. Guess I’m not gonna get my hands on one. $300 is such a great deal!
