    If you go to Copper Mtns, Winter Park’s, Lovelands and Big Sky’s web cams, you can see the construction on the new lifts

    Did this have chain driven terminals?

      As evidenced by the YouTube video I posted above, it did. It actually kept them all the way to 2018, much longer than other lifts of similar vintage (the Beaver Run SuperChair, built around the same time as American Eagle, got converted to tire-driven contours in 1999).
