    Not mentioned here, but Green Mountain Controls did some upgrades on Tamarack at Stratton, strange as there are already plans to replace it with a detachable. I had a pic somewhere, I’ll try to get it

      I think Tam is going to be there a while longer. They are putting new Partek chairs on it as well.

        The original capital expenditure timeline got pushed back a year by Alterra across the board. Plus, with the lower capacity restrictions anticipated for this winter and longer timeframe for a potential hotel development at Lot 1, the need for a chairlift upgrade has been reduced.

        That all being said, lifts often have maintenance in the few years leading up to replacement, so I would not take this as a definitive sign of much.

        Where did you hear about Tamarack getting new Partek chairs? I never knew that as being a plan for the lift.

        I don’t know why they’d give Tam partek chairs unless they plan on selling/reusing it (which is silly). The lift is 50 years old and due to be replaced with a detach, and already has plastic partek backrests.

          That was my logic. I find it hard to believe that theyd do that, hence why I asked the source.

    FYI. Granby Ranch ski area foreclosure sale was delayed yet again for another week, now to August 7. The original date was set for July 17, but has been delayed every week since,
