    Hi Peter,

    Got any skinny on Windham’s replacement high speed for the triple they sold to Greek Peak?

    WiNdham has said a brand new high speed 4 is going in but zero details yet.

    Thx

      Doppelmayr D-Line detachable quad. I believe the lift going in at Greek Peak is Windham’s former F removed a few years ago.

        D-Line quad? First in the world?

    I’m curious how Eaglecrest projects the summer use of a 600 pph pulse gondola. Your 2019 writeup of the earlier plan mentioned 1,500 pph on a detachable with the potential to expand to 2,400. Given the likely ski demand, even 1,500 would be a lot for winter ops.
    But I wonder how long a cruise ship is in port? It’s close to a half hour from the cruise terminal to the base, then it takes 30 mins to lift 300 people up if the attendant loads the cabins well, then they mill about, and have to ride down & bus back. So it’s likely sold as a 3 hour excursion from the port? Maybe a longer, esp if things like zip lines & a food venue up top also happen. I guess it it is an 8 or 9 hour visit in port, that makes a nice half-day. I just can imagine some longish lines if multiple busses pull up at once.
