    Ironic. A lift named Big Blue that serves green terrain and has white terminals.

        The lift is named for the view of Lake Tahoe from the top terminal.

    This lift starts where High Camp triple used to start and ends at the former top of East Broadway.

      It’s because they are too scared of beginners getting injured. I have seen so many of them fall off of the lift. They definitely run their lifts fast sometimes, I remember the old Siberia running at top speed once and they tend to run Squaw One very fast. It’s funny that the lifts that I remember them running the fastest are also some of the oldest express lifts.
