I’d like to see Paradise Express realigned to start at the bottom of Teocalli. This closure is disappointing because it will now require 2 lifts to access some great cruising runs. Also, I miss these old Riblets. I think this leaves Looking Glass at Winter Park as the last operational one in the state.
There are actually 16 Riblet lifts still operating in Colorado. Looking Glass is tied with Primo at Sunlight for the oldest.
Ha! I had no idea…you would know!
Segundo at Sunlight would be the oldest if you considered it’s prior life at Aspen. But who knows what they added/modded when it was relocated to Sunlight in the 70s.
