    Is this the second last Habegger lift in north america next to Hells gate? (the vonroll merge does not count)

      I don’t think it is a Habbeger. It is a Voest Alpine.
      There used to be 2 chairlifts by Habegger at Grouse Mountain, but not sure if they are still there.

        Its Habbeger. The plaque is at the top service desk. The 2 Habegger chairlifts are currently abandoned with the haul rope removed and the towers used for lighting. Peak terminal is now a restaurant while blue berry is still abandoned.

          Blue Skyride is a Voest, You can see there was a plaque on the tower. The motor room still has one too, its just behind the curtain.

    New Update on this lift:
    Its now going to be open to public during peak times, when the Red Skyride has lines 1 hour+.
    Its a bit slower with the blue being 14 mins compared to red’s being 7mins, however this is a step in the right direction.
    Im just hoping this hints a 3S gondola soon….
