    I thought Big White was completely replacing the cabins on Laura’s Gondola. I didn’t realize that they would add additional cabins. How many cabins on the line are their now?

      There were 16 cabins before so a total of 24 now. Big White is quoting the new ones at CAD$75,000 apiece so I can understand why they didn’t do the whole set.

        It sure does look strange seeing two different types of cabin on one line, I like it though.

        Out of interest, does anyone know if lift manufacturers continue to manufacture old grip models or would they have acquired these grips second hand?

          While the grips are not current production, they are still available from Leitner. Probably have a longer than normal lead time for the order.

          I’m fairly certain you can order pretty much any old grip design brand new from a manufacturer, Stratton did a few years ago when they replaced all of the grips on their gondola.
