    Any idea who built the old lift at the Lake Placid ski jump?

      It’s a 1987 Poma double. Maybe ORDA will bundle the new lift into an RFP for new lifts at Gore and/or Whiteface.

    Its gotta be big sky or whistler blackomb, they have the only projects big enough and Disney’s ropes have to have started before now.

    If you look more closely at the Copper Mountain rendering, the skirts appear to have texture so maybe they went with the full wood option?

      Looks like copper stained wood to me with black Diamond cabins and blue bubble chairs.

      You are correct. We’re going with wood. I heard it’ll be stained dark brown, similar to the lift shacks on H and K and the grip building on H.

    Rob at WB says the Blackcomb Gondola barn will be 21,000 square feet and able to hold all 185 cabins. Impressive!

    To clarify, the Pico midweek rental only includes the two high speed quads.
