      no upgrades for Chair 1 or 2? I thought they’d be the first to get any upgrades since they’re the busiest/most used lifts…

        Chair two was repowered a couple of years ago- SkyTrac controls, ABB drive. Chair one a few years before that. All 3 have modern controls, VFD drives.

          Ah that makes sense. Guess it’s been that long since I’ve been to Lost Trail. Kinda hard to get over there when I work Thursday-Sunday at my ski hill (the same days that LT is open)
