    Why is it a Midwestern trend to turn chairlifts into rope tows as seen in the last pic? Is it easier to maintain? I would think that with the amount of skier visits Wilmot gets that the beginner capacity would be needed for a double chair instead of two rope tows.

    The rope tows service the terrain park. The users of the park are quite happy with the ropes over a chair. It’s quite popular. This Borvig runs about 1/2 speed, so getting up the tow is twice as fast. It’s the worst lift there by far, and is rarely used.
