Bonaventure – Jay Peak, VT

The first part of the lift line.
This lift was slated to be replaced with a six-pack in 2013. Instead, the bottom terminal was moved to make way for the new lodge and a new Doppelmayr CTEC tower added.

    Not sure if it was better before the base was moved, but this lift has a higher incidence of loading problems. Rear entry, short load approach. It regularly stops at least 8-10 times per ride.

      I noticed it stops and slows very frequently. It really needs to be replaced with a detachable ASAP.

        Making this a detachable quad, I could see them maybe being able to recycle the towers, or at least the tubes.

    This lift says it was supposed to be replaced with a Six place in 2013, but how does that work. Would the lift be a standard fixed grip six, because I’ve never seen one, or would it be a high speed six
