    The chairs Crotched is selling must be from the Valley Double that was removed during the 2003 reopening of the resort. The hanger arms are mounted counter-clockwise and they have wood slat seats, which match the configuration for that lift. I’d only assume they have been in outside storage for 20 years on top of that lift standing but not operating for about 8 years prior to that. Explains the rough condition they’re in.

    I wish the North American LPA terminals looked as nice and modern as the European Poma terminals like the one featured in the attached video. Does anyone think the LPA terminals will be refreshed anytime soon with the D-line gaining more traction in North America? I know the aesthetic of skilifts has little influence compared to price, reliability, in the procurement process, more just curious

      LPOA is almost a third division of the greater company and has its own designs. I can’t personally speak for them but from what I’ve seen they’re fairly independent of Europe when it comes to terminal designs. I’m not sure you could even order a European terminal (although I know GJ has sold a couple North American models to French areas).

      Personally, I think the current LPA terminals look pretty nice, especially the wooden siding like we have.
