    Still think that Breckenridge gondola’s a bit odd and it would make more sense to just build an underpass or skybridge.

    I wonder if that T-bar at Sun Peaks will ever run again, they’ve been talking about replacing it for a while.

      I bet its lack of staff holding them back at the moment, that part of the mountain never used to get that much use, so the T-bar is probably the lowest on the totem pole of staffing.

      I know many BC ski areas are struggling with staff numbers, considering that many employees normally come from overseas and their numbers continue to be smaller than previous years

        I think you’re probably correct. Last year they said it was because pandemic difficulties prevented them from being able to acquire repair parts for it, but I assume the staffing issues are a major part of the picture.

    Sad to see another Borvig surface lift bite the dust. Hopefully Snow Valley’s hall can be reused, either as a reinstallation or for parts for SV’s other Halls.

    One note, the LCC gondola is wholly in unincorporated Salt Lake county/City of Alta. You have to drive through Sandy (or Cottonwood Heights) to get there, but the gondola wouldn’t touch either city
