    It feels like the Palisades website is trying as hard as they can to downplay this lift lol …

    “Sightseeing will not be allowed here.”
    “The Gondola will operate during the winter season only”
    “installation of the Gondola will not open additional skiable terrain … The trip will take about 16 minutes.”
    “The name of the Gondola is Base to Base Gondola.”

    … like ‘this lift is not exciting. it will not give you shiny new views. it’s basically invisible. it basically doesn’t exist. please don’t hate on us.’

      Yeah I’m a bit sad it won’t be open in the summer but I still think it will be nice.

    Is Seven Brothers still going to be a lift? The article makes it sound like they bought the towers to use as supports for a Monkey Trunks type rope adventure thingy.

      Sounds like a lift to me: “The work, which will begin shortly, will include the installation of a small chairlift connecting a new parking lot”

    Interesting that the Grouse Gondola is such limited capacity with it only nominally being specced to the capacity of the old Blue tram, so the total will stay the same. I suspect some sort of balanced capacity issue re parking / amenities or other so it could be hand waved past permitting. The new Gondola should easily be able to manage almost double that with extra cabins. They really need that as its incredibly busy most of the time anyways.

      Reading the presser, it appears they plan on running the gondola and the Red tram at the same time. It’s been a long while since they ran public on the Blue tram, so that’s a step up in capacity (or a return to the original, but either way).

      sucks that they are probably gonna replace that blue tram top building. In pictures, it looks like quite a unique cool looking building. probably going to be replaced with some boring modern thing.

    ‘been in this business for seventy years… and never heard of a “Swiss Cord.” Is this a new name for a rope tow?

          so it would not start at the base I assume, because that would be a long rope tow

    Wonder if the poma on Mont Glen will serve the full 1000+ vert of the former trails or the lower former chairlift portion. That’ll be 1 leg burner of a ride.

    Very classy of Red Peaks to keep the Sunnyside name from Alta.
