    If I’m correct, the removal of Duckling means there are no Roebling lifts still in operation without major modifications

      Aren’t Hopkins essentially the same as Roeblings? If so, then there are plenty left at various amusement parks as sky rides and what not..

        Hopkins used some Roebling tech, but most of the designs are pretty different.

    Please someone correct me if I am wrong, but I have used the Leitner ropeway config. around even this time last year. Did they update it?

    Interesting revenue data from Vail – it’s not that skiers aren’t skiing, it’s that they’re not learning, eating, or buying stuff.

    A bit surprised we haven’t heard from Alterra yet…

        My guess is they will announce on March 23rd the same day Epic pass releases details haha would be an epic move by Alterra

      Rumors are that Alterra is doing Squaw-Alpine gondola this year instead of mammoth six packs and will announce name change in press release too. Nothing is really know about elsewhere though but I will be not surprised if we see announcements on something at Steamboat or Timber Express at Tremblant.

      I can ask one of my friends who would know this weekend. I would not be surprised if it were either because they A) did not want to announce the Squaw rebrand until April after the season and the gondola may be their only big capital improvement or B) Vail’s Epic announcement is later than usual and throwing all of their PR a couple of weeks early would just allow it to be overshadowed in the second half of the month.

        It’s likely they will do capital improvements at Steamboat also by redoing base area and moving gondola bottom terminal. I have heard Pioneer trails are very likely to be done there too.
