The line runs parallel to the Silver Queen Gondola for its entire length, meaning Bell Mountain rarely operates.

    Does anyone have any information as to why this lift was so heavily upgraded by POMA in the late 80s?

    Need to have a good reliable back-up lift in case Silver Queen goes down?

    Why don’t they remove this lift, and Bell Mountain instead of Gents Ridge. From what I can tell this lift rarely operates?

      No way, this Lift is crucial for early season skiing because the snowmaking only goes up to the top of this Lift. It also runs during the spring too as well as closing day when they run an event when people ride up this lift and ski down all together as the last people down the hill. They also need it if the SLG goes down or wind holded.

    I would love to see a detachable quad replace Bell Mountain and Little Nell running the length of both.

      That’s a great idea
