    The new tower has a european style lifting frame. Look on Snowbasin’s instagram post.

    This lift was originally named “Olympic Tram” when installed. Its name was changed to “Mt. Allen Tram” shortly after the Salt Lake City Olympics in 2002 and again to “Allen Peak Tram” in 2008.

    Would someone mind explaining to me why there is a UNI station on a tram? What purpose does it serve? It may be obvious but this still baffles me.

      It’s a terminal covering meant to match the adjacent JP lift. It’s not actually a UNI terminal.

      Grampa Earl wanted things to look classy. Same reason he sprang for the fancy matching cladding on the late Wildcat and Middle Bowl Triples. Also why Strawberry gots that puuuurty barn and JP and Needles have the underground garages. Or internal routing on bikes these days. Gotta have the look.

        Ay I prefer that approach to the Deer Valley/Vail/Northstar cookie cutter “luxury skiing”. Snowbasin and Sun Valley have always felt classy but rugged. The lodges are always spacious and rustic. The food has always been great, but not quite the 5-star Deer Valley or Whistler ulta-formal. They feel more consistently themed, and imo it’s marketing that has worked to keep them competitive with the Vails and Alterras of the world.

          Too bad Snowbasin ruined the classiness of the consistent and beautiful Doppelmayr lift enclosure aesthetics across the mountain with an LPA 6 pack, that doesn’t remotely fit in with the style and aesthetics of every other lift. They should have gone with a 6 pack Uni-G, for both the aesthetic, and economically for part sharing. The extra cost put into these enclosures for the tram were a total waste with LPA showing up
