    How does an unstaffed lift even work? What if they need to stop the gondola for some reason?

    The way I understood it is that it is not entirely unstaffed, but only has staff in one of the three stations. An alpinforum.com who works for ski resorts posted some interesting pictures of the internals of the comm system in the gondolas that allows video and audio communication with the remote lift operator here: https://www.alpinforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=64670

    Epic pass holders got a PR fluff apology from Katz today about the wait times for customer service help without any concrete plans on improving the situation moving forward

    The video on Gary is ironic since neither heavenly or Kirkwood has seen a new lift in over a decade. I believe last years upgrade of galaxy from a double to a triple was a used chair from Colorado. Sad situation at vail owned resorts in California

      Galaxy upgrade was newish as in the lift got new terminals, and chairs but the line equipment (towers, sheave assemblies) came from various other Vail resorts. I was surprised with how long the lift was they didn’t go with a detachable.

    Is the Eiger Express VIP car targeted to Chinese skiers? Or is 8 a lucky number in other cultures too?
