    whats the “one and only” gondola at big sky???


    • Montana Powder Skier August 3, 2022 / 11:23 pm

      I didn’t know there was a such thing as a d-line 8 person gondola. Glad to see that Big Sky is getting the first one😊.

      BS or its capital partner is planning a hotel of some sort over by Moonlight called the “One and Only”. This gondola is probably an access lift. So I don’t think it will supplement the meager lift system at Moonlight or alleviate the 100% dependence on the Six Shooter lift at that resort.


      • Bob February 25, 2023 / 3:34 pm

        Seems kinda confusing to call it the “one and only gondola” when they are installing two other gondolas that year. It seems like they could have come up with a better name that would be less confusing.


        • ShangRei Garrett February 25, 2023 / 3:45 pm

          One&Only is a luxury resort brand that is building the development that will have a gondola connecting it to Moonlight Basin


      • ShangRei Garrett February 25, 2023 / 3:48 pm

        It’s not intended to supplement Six Shooter; in fact, I’m not sure if it’s being funded by Big Sky/Boyne at all, or if One&Only, the resort company, is paying for it itself, but it definitely is only an access lift


        • Bob February 25, 2023 / 5:46 pm

          I don’t think BS is paying for it, as there’s nothing about it on its website (unlike its other lift projects).

      What quad?


        • Peter Landsman July 22, 2022 / 12:50 pm

          Heard there is a third project in play replacing Lift 4 with a high speed quad. Nothing official in the Forest Service system yet though.

        Last I heard it is Telluride’s old chair 9. I think Purgatory has a few more hoops to jump through but it should be happening in the next couple of years.


        • ShangRei Garrett January 6, 2023 / 10:06 pm

          I assume you mean they’re using the old 9 for Ice Creek, right? I can’t imagine they would replace twilight with a used fixed-grip, and Gelande is probably going to be the last of the three projects


        • pbropetech January 7, 2023 / 6:03 pm

          Yes, I wasn’t clear. I was responding to Chairlift Mania’s comment.

    Hows the sun peaks west bowl quad doing?

    Where did you hear about this “ridgeline” chairlift at snowbasin? Littlecat is being replaced by a combination chairlift?


  5. Andy January 6, 2023 / 8:16 pm

    Currently being sourced and priced from the two major Lift Manufacturers: A replacement for Arrowhead: a 1988 Dopplemayr Quad chairlift, length 2440 feet, vertical 530 feet at the Alpine Ski Club in Collingwood Ontario. (data from Skilifts.org. Replacement timeframe from Alpine’s 2022 member yearend magazine.


    • reaperskier January 7, 2023 / 5:57 am

      Guessing Alpine Ski Club wants to replace Arrowhead with a modern fixed grip quad from Dopp or LPA, with Skytrac as a wildcard option. I doubt it will be a high speed quad with a mid-unload station.


      • Andy January 7, 2023 / 6:56 pm

        Correct Arrowhead won’t be a high speed quad , but they do want to move the mid unload station higher up the hill and also raise (fill in a dip in the ground) and move the bottom station uphill level with the bottom terminal of 2002 Dopplemayr CTEC Six Pack not too far away.

        The next high speed quad at the Alpine Ski Club in Collingwood will be in the 2028 range to replace the Millenium Quad in the North section of the Club.


        • reaperskier January 7, 2023 / 8:26 pm

          Is there the possibility for a loading conveyor on the replacement Arrowhead lift? Also, why is the club planning on relocating the midstation?


        • Andy January 10, 2023 / 7:59 pm

          Management at the Alpine Ski Club has not released any amount of detail on location on 2024 Arrowhead Quad midstation location, but typically the reason why ski resorts move terminal locations when rebuilding is to get better or different use out of the ski acreage available.

    In 2024, a new high speed quad, (Shadow Mountain) should be built to replace the SLI-RIBLET Shadow Mountain Double at Aspen Mountain, CO. No info on who’s going to manufacture it.


    • Myles January 8, 2023 / 4:27 pm

      Probably LPA considering they have built all of Aspens other high speed lifts.


      • ShangRei Garrett January 8, 2023 / 4:57 pm

        I thought 1A was going to be a combination lift. Did the plan change?


    • Peter Landsman January 9, 2023 / 10:27 am

      Should like you want or should like that is what’s happening?


      • Joey March 1, 2023 / 5:45 pm

        I think this will be an HSQ. Kind of sad to see that old double go. On the bright side, it’ll definitely fix that horrible swing on exit.


        • Bb2 March 1, 2023 / 6:50 pm

          So it is happening?


  7. Bob January 10, 2023 / 9:37 am

    Which resort in Austria is the Eaglecrest gondola coming from?


  8. skitheeast January 27, 2023 / 12:24 am

    Brian Head announced in the Salt Lake Tribune that the first lift(s) for Aspen Meadows will be installed in 2024. Logically speaking, it will likely be Stage 1 (and maybe Stage 2) of the gondola.

    Sunshine Village has now officially re-branded as Banff Sunshine Village.


  10. The Skier March 3, 2023 / 4:51 pm

    Will the One & Only Gondola at Big Sky have the boxy R2 style glass enclosures like the Explorer Gondola?

    It would be cool to have both gondola terminals match and then have all the bubble lifts use the standard D-Line terminal with the screen on the end


  11. SKIID March 13, 2023 / 12:55 pm

    Nothing has been said locally about Mt Spokane replacing Vista Cruiser. Since it’s in a State Park, it’s usually big news.


    • Chase March 13, 2023 / 1:16 pm

      It’s not confirmed. Some of the funds come from state parks funding, which was recently cut from the budget.


  12. skitheeast March 28, 2023 / 11:38 am

    Gore’s Hudson Express got moved to 2024? Hasn’t that project been ordered and confirmed for almost a year? Supply chain issues in 2022 was why the project got pushed to 2023 initially…


    • Peter Landsman March 28, 2023 / 11:42 am

      It has been postponed. I believe from the ORDA side, not anything on the Leitner-Poma end. Bear Cub at Gore and Legacy at Whiteface are still on for this year per the most recent ORDA board meeting.
