Cabriolet – Tremblant, QC

Like at many of the resorts it developed in the 1990s, Intrawest built a cabriolet gondola to connect day skier parking lots and the village core.

    What I always found fascinating about this lift is its use of DS grips with second generation UNI (spacejet) terminals. Flying mile, built in the same year, uses the same terminals but with DT grips.

    As it turns out, Doppelmayr hadn’t yet developed DT grips for gondolas.

      It was more a case of Flying Mile being one of the global launches of the DT-104. Tremblant had the Cabriolet fitted with the Uni-S/M/L terminal skins to match, but it utilizes the first gen. Uni technology.

        So basically, it uses first generation technology but terminal skins similar to Super Bravo at Sugarbush? Similar to Shedhorn 4 in many ways except for the fact that it uses a UNI-G terminal skin.

    In the worldbook photos you can clearly see that the lift pre-dated all the buildings around it.

    DS-104 or 108?

      DS-108. The grips are noticeably larger than the DS-104 grips on Duncan and Soleil.
