Beavers – Arapahoe Basin, CO

The Beavers lift opened hundreds of acres of new terrain in 2018. It was opened without lift access a year prior.
The lift is a Leitner-Poma Alpha quad.

    Has L-P built a fixed grip with the Leitner chairs yet? Or is this the last use of the Omega chairs on a new lift?

      Fixed grips always get Omega chairs but the Leitner style chairs are available for detachables. They are too heavy for lifties to bump so that’s why they only appear on detachables. This year, Hunter is the only mountain to get Omega chairs on a detachable. Last year everyone got Leitner style chairs.

        You’d practically need a carpet or something in order to load LPA chairs on a fixed grip, hypothetically.

    In another photo of this lift which I linked below, there seems to be a ladder platform to the right of the bull wheel. If click on the link. Anyone know what this is for?
