    Montana Snowbowl’s new chairlift has a Poma top drive instead of a Riblet one.

      The lift is the former Burlingame lift from Snowmass, it had been upgraded with a Poma drive from Fanny hill lift when the former was replaced with by the village six. I believe Snowbowl has the old High alpine lift to, though they have not installed it yet.

    Seems to be a lot of late-model Doppelmayr detachables experiencing downtime this (and last) season. Very odd…

    Arizona Snowbowl Agassiz lift evacuation – In Flagstaff there has been no mention of the evacuation, not in the news, cover up, should have been in local paper. Just that the lift is closed till further notice. I heard currently they are waiting for x ray equipment to diagnose problem.
