Apache Bowl #6 – Ski Apache, NM

Of the four Doppelmayr lifts at Ski Apache as of 2018, each one has a different drive terminal model. Apache Bowl utilizes an Alpen Star.
The top terminal of the previous Riblet triple was in a building that burned down, taking the lift with it.

    What’s the difference between Alpen-star and Uni-star?

        There’s more than just a window difference between the Unistar and the Alpenstar. The tension system on the Alpenstar resembles the Skytrac Monarch. The Unistar essentially replaced the Northstar II with a new enclosure. The Unistar is only a fixed drive while the Alpenstar is a combined drive/tension. The Unistar is still in production as the Uni-G fixed drive without tensioning.

    Why are the seat pads falling off?

      Those aren’t seat pads. It is the factory-provided protective plastic wrap used on the chairs before the lift is used.

    so this lift’s drive burnt down but this was separate from the fire that burnt down the other lifts. Wow that is bad luck
