Cascade Mountain to Add New Quad

Popular Wisconsin destination Cascade Mountain will replace its Mogul Monster triple this summer with a brand new Leitner-Poma quad. The outgoing lift is a 1987 Borvig utilizing towers from the mountain’s original chairlift first opened 60 years ago today.

“This offseason, we’ll be replacing our current Mogul Monster triple passenger lift with a brand-new fixed grip quadruple passenger chairlift,” Cascade Mountain said in an anniversary announcement. “Looking a lot like our B-Dub lift, this quad will help us improve our uphill capacity and clear up a little more congestion in the base area compared to the current Mogul Monster Lift. We’d like to thank both our customer base and staff for your continued support over the last 60 years and to the next 60+ to come!”

    I don’t know if the existing triple has routinely been run at 475 fpm?
    If the new lift is like D-dub and runs at 400, that extends the ride time by almost a minute (2227′ lift length). Are the chairs able to be spaced a little closer with the slower fpm for extra capacity? I suppose swinging quad chairs by the liftie is harder at 450 or 475, also.
    Just curious about the relationship of line speed and capacity, as well as skier satisfaction with an FGQ running on a line length only 200′ shorter than their detachable. Thanks!

    Cascade is a lot closer to Portage than Wisconsin Dells.

    I grew up riding that lift! Learned to ski at Cascade starting a little before ’87.
