    $25,000 for a Red Pine Gondola Cabin!? I’m going to hope that’s a typo. That’s insanity otherwise.

      Half of them are being sold at $25k as a fundraiser. So yes, but no

    oh I don’t know. Some rich folks will pay that much for one to put in their backyard (or front)

    Hello Peter,

    Greetings from Chile! My name is Jimmy Ackerson, GM of Corralco ski Resort.

    Was wondering if you might publish the fact that we have purchased the Mardi Gras detach quad from Holiday Valley NY and are looking to have it operating in June 2024. It will be only the second detach in the country and the first on the south of Chile.

    We obviously are quite enthused with this step and look forward to more and more North Americans visiting us between June and November!

    Thanks for the support. You’re doing a great job!

      Nice, considering that it is a smaller sized mountain

      This is awesome! Already decided on where it is going to be installed on the mountain? I haven’t been to Chile but Corralco is on my list of places I want to get to when I eventually get down there.

    The new D-Line gondola (from the video) replaces a 1984 6-seat WSO Stadeli gondola with Giovanola clamps. I wish Stadeli had a better presence here in the US; maybe Poma and Doppelmayr had already taken over by then.

    lol $25k for a gondola. Does anyone know how much a new one of those cabins typically costs?

      I vaguely recall hearing $40k for a Sigma 8-passenger cabin.

    Per the latest Twitter post from Sugarbush, the lifts slated to be replaced are Heaven’s Gate, which was previously mooted to be upgraded with a FG quad, and Northridge, which has a long history of mechanical issues and is likely headed for the scrap heap. No word on timing though.
