    Will the new gondola terminal location at steamboat have a Uni-G skin on it? Also I think Wild Blue should be D-line because they plan on adding a second stage in the future and Doppelmayr may not offer Uni-G by then.

    Why is Sundance selling Ray’s for such a cheap price? There are fixed grip quads lifts that are half as long that sell for 3 million. 300,000 would have been cheap for a quad 20 years ago. Now that most new fixed grip quads sell for 2-3 million, I would think a lift as new and in good condition as Ray’s should go for at least 1 million.

      You will probably find the buyer is responsible for the cost of removing the lift by a certain date, which adds significantly to the cost of the lift. The sale price of the equipment usually factors that in. We gave away Crystal chair, but Cherry Peak were on the hook to get rid of it in a hurry.

    Ray’s has a ton of hours. It runs 10 months of the year. I wouldn’t say it’s in really good condition either as this point. Lots of sheaves are starting to be swapped out for Skytrac ones. The chairs and towers are looking pretty ratty. But yeah for being that long I’d expect it to be more than 300k, especially with them replacing/rebuilding the gearbox or whatever that caused it to be down for days last year? 2 years ago?

    I find it interesting that Keystone is saying that this was the original Argentine lift when in fact, it was a Riblet Double chair that was replaced in the late 70’s. When you go to the Charity link you’ll notice that they have a picture of the original lift. A google search for Argentine lift Keystone revealed a website called Skiresort.info which confirms that This iteration of the lift was built in 1977.

      It was replaced in 1977. Still don’t know why. I did a web search trying to find any clues, but nothing as of yet.
