I would much rather watch a Poma video that explains why the parts they send us are wrong or immediately unavailable than watch that guy who has had his hands in his pockets all summer wearing Poma logos
Is anyone aware of any future plans that Alyeska might have?
Nothing about the start of the ski season? Wolf creek opened today, and we knew when this bit of news came out!
So I know this isn’t really the right place to ask this, but the reCAPTCHA is broken on skilifts.org and I can’t make an account. Does anyone know the name of the terminal model used in France, Spain, and Andorra during the mid to late 2000s? i.e. La Turra at Val Cenis. It seems quite common. There’s a few other unusual models across the pond that I can’t figure out either.
Remontées Méchaniques has it listed as a UNI-G. (https://www.remontees-mecaniques.net/bdd/reportage-tsd6-de-la-turra-doppelmayr-2312.html) It’s definitely manufactured by Doppelmayr. That being said, it seems to me that the terminals look like a Poma Multix. Maybe the skins were ordered custom to blend in with the rest.
It’s for sure Doppelmayr. I found it in their 2009 worldbook. And it effeminately appears across southern Europe. So is it just an alternative terminal skin like UNI-G Vision? Would the same be said for the pancake-style return terminals in some lifts found from the same period?
