    Wow, that guy I talked to at Mission Ridge was not BSing me about them wanting a gondola…

      Seems to be to be low tension when the lift is under heavy load. Wonder if something failed/is failing with the hydraulics.

        Wouldn’t there be more noticeable/considerable sag if that were the case? I’d think they’d stop running it right away?

        That portal tower was reused when the bottom drive was replaced in 2015.

          Reused, but on new foundations. The climb-out is so shallow that I was surprised they kept it.

        No- if that were the case the pressure switches and/or carriage limit switches should trip before anything drastic happened. Unless the tension system is set too low to begin with.

    Elko Sno Bowl in Nevada has called it a season already..

      Why close so early? Is Elko Snowbowl on public land?

        They have not received a lot of snow and the trails are thin.

    Hope ascutney has some better winters coming up… it’s hard to be only natural in New England now. Invested too big on the reopening, should probably have taken the strategy Magic took; slowly build back up to big profit
