      Will Molly Hogan also be an Alpha given how short it is? Does Poma (rather than Skytrac) have another terminal design to use for something this short? It looks like there are at least three Alpha front masts for bottom-drive depression sheaves (two per lift). Will Molly be realigned? There is plenty of room between Pali and the HSQ for a longer Molly

    Do you have more information on that Gondola at Yellowstone? Also, is it neccecary to specify it’s fixed? Detacheble jigbakcs don’t make a lot of sense to me.

      It will be from a ski run on the Eglise side up to some houses along the golf course. Just two 8 passenger cabins. 2x1x8 MGFJ is how Doppelmayr describes it.

        CWA Omega 4 cabins, and a Uni-star terminal, Or something more fancy?

    Did Bousquet get the winning bid on Hayfever or Witches at Hermitage?


    • Peter Landsman June 7, 2020 / 7:19 pm

      Negative, all the Hermitage lifts were acquired by the homeowner group which bought the club.

        So I guess it is the old Barnstormer triple.


        • Peter Landsman June 8, 2020 / 5:41 am

          No, Hayfever. What I’m saying is it was not sold as part of the auction.

    What happened to the beer can tram idea at Yellowstone?

    Where’d you get the info for the Sunbowl replacement at Camelback? I can’t seem to find anything online or on any websites

    Is Lake Louise really replacing Summit this year?


  9. Munier Salem July 25, 2020 / 6:21 am

    Glad to see ORDA stepping up this year. But surprised Partek didn’t get one of the bids.

    With both Mammoth lifts delayed to 2021, this was the first offseason since 2010 where CA/NV had no new lifts.

    Seeing a new pic on Loch Lomond’s Facebook Page (:Loch Lomond – Thunder Bay Ontario ) . A pic of their Fall 2020 BBQ shows new chairs on what used to be a 1986 BM Quad chair. Did they change anything more more than the chairs? (Change the towerheads too, that one in the Instagram pic does not look like a BM towerhead. Just asking
